    Default how to pump extra?

    i pump in the am for my dd's morning bottle, then at lunch for her afternoon bottle, then bf all evening, night, & w-end. how do i pump to store extra for date nights, etc? i've found that when i do have extra in the freezer, my mom gives it to her saying "she got hungry" i'm down to only 3 bags in the freezer.

    2 things-can you sneak in an occasional pumping session at night to rebuild the stash-like when you know DD will be sleeping for 2 or more hours?

    I would address the issue with your mom. Is she used to BM? Is she reading hunger cues correctly?

    Can you hide it in the freezer? For instance, put the milk you pump inside an extra ziploc then inside an empty flour bag then in a large ziploc at the back? Or wrap it in foil like leftovers & put it at the back/bottom?

    Also, can you fit a pumping in between feedings on the weekend, while DH has your daughter?

    My DH has this problem too! Can you only make certain bottles and hide the rest like pp suggested?
