Re: Pumping Oversupply
I had a similar situation when I went back to work; in that I was making significantly more than my LO was eating. If you have any room at all in your freezer, and your work schedule is such that pumping isn't adding too much stress to your life, I would definitely recommend storing your excess. After a month of having way too much, and being kind of cavalier with bottles, my LO went through a growth spurt and I got super busy at work, AF came back and suddenly we were dipping into my freezer stash pretty significantly. Things have gotten better, but I think about the breast milk I tossed in the beginning, and regret it . In point of fact, I had no more freezer space, but still. Pumping has only gotten harder for me, and I had a great start.

Feel like we've gotten a strong start
