I am a first time mom and new to this forum. I am looking for some advice on how to start the pumping/storing process to go back to work in 4 weeks. The LC at the hospital was very nice but didn't really give me a good starting point. Her advice was just "see how it goes for you, everyone is different". Which I do understand but I would like some guidance on where I should even start. When do I start pumping? How many times a day? I know I need to get going so I can build up my stock. How many ozs per "serving" do I store. My plan right now is to start pumping once a day, after her morning feeding. Do I pump both breasts or only the one she didn't nurse from? I appreciate any suggestions to get me started!
Thank you so much and I look forward to being a part of this wonderful forum!!
