How soon can I pump and store?
I exclusively pumped for my DS so I didn't really have this issue since I never got him on the breast to begin with.
How soon after my LO is born should I pump and store milk? I plan to give EBM 1-2x a day in a bottle as soon as our nursing relationship is established. I do not want to have over supply which is why I am asking.
Also when is the best time to pump? right after she nurses or before? I'd like to start a nice freezer stash asap and I'd also like to donate milk. My fear is pumping and then there being nothing in the breast when she nurses if I pump to close to her next feed.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
