Re: Working mom and pumping?
Most mothers don't need to start pumping until a week or two before they go back to work. You'll need enough milk to provide for the first day, and to practice pumping so you know how the pump works and how your body reacts to it.
Anything you can get now can be frozen for when you go back to work.
Most mothers find that their supply is best in the morning, so try pumping then. You can pump one side while baby nurses on the other, or pump after baby is done nursing, when you're still feeling full.
If you'll vary the time during the day that you're pumping, you won't create an over-supply issue, but if you consistently pump at the same time each day, you may find yourself fuller at those times of day.
