Re: Pumping schedule and working?
I am able to get by on pumping 2x per day at work. DS is 5 months and I've been back at work for the past 3 months. Pumping 2x/day hasn't affected my supply, thankfully. And I do usually pump more in the morning than the afternoon.
My schedule looks something like this:
5am - nurse
7am - nurse
9:30am - pump at work
1:30pm - pump at work
5pm - nurse
7:30pm - nurse
(and an occasional middle of the night feeding session)
I say we mommies give ourselves a big pat on the back for continuing to breastfeed while working. It's a lot of work but worth it!
