Hello there. I've posted in a few different forums here about various things. DD is three weeks old and everything is going fine except for my OS issue on the left side. She chokes and gags. I've been block feeding ....well mostly just always offering up my right breast first and then the left (she rarely takes both). I hand express a little when the left side becomes too full. Im ok with all of this and think it's all pretty much ok. Nice weight gain, yellow seedy poo, etc.
My major concern now that I'm mildly wigging out about is my return to work in a little over three weeks. I work eight hour shifts overnight and in the evenings and not usually in consecutive days. I do want to start pumping though. How do I do this with my already crazy left breast? I don't want to make that problem worse, but I don't know how to go about pumping on the right: before/after nursing, how many times/how long. I'm just really nervous about the whole thing. I was young and undereducated with my first and went straight to EPing with her (and only lasted three months). I prayed long and hard DD2 and I could get the hang of it and I really feel like we have; I don't want going back to work to screw it up and leave her hungry when I go back to work
