OK, I asked before about stopping the nighttime pumping, so now I'll ask about what to do with all that extra milk in the morning. I've sometimes pumped it and added it to my frozen collection, but other days I've just left it there for the next feeding. What is the impact on my supply? How many of you out there whose babies don't each much at night pump your morning excess for reasons other than needing it for when you're away?
My supply is a little less than what DS wants these days (having been hit with mastitis shortly after stopping the nighttime pumping) and I've been using some of my frozen collection during the day, 3 oz times two usually. So if I pump, it will get used. But I'm lazy and don't necessarily want to spend my time pumping if he can just drink it during the next feeding. If milk is truly "use it or lose it," will I lose it?
