    Default block feeding and pumping??

    I feed from one side at each feeding switching every feeding unless it has been less than an hour... I just started back to work today and I fed before I left on the right side then pumped at work on both sides, so when I get home do I feed on the side I missed or the side I did before I left? I got a lot more milk out of the side that was up for the next feeding. Or should I only pump the side that is due for the feeding. On a normal day I will feed before I leave pump once in the morning, go the the sitters and feed LO on my lunch break and pump on time in the afternoon and feed LO as soon as I get home.
    So I guess I am wondering if anyone has had to pump that does block feeding and if you did double pumping or one side?

    With DD1 I only ever nursed her from one side and I double pumped 3x's a day while at work. If I nursed her on the left side before work then I'd nurse her starting with the right side after work.

    Thats what I have been doing but he nurses a lot longer than normal and is ready to nurse again 30 min later... is this because I am gone part of the day, like a comfort thing??
