Thread: Help w/ bedtime and pumping

    Default Help w/ bedtime and pumping

    We are just trying to start an 8:30 bedtime w/ our 6 week old. Previously I was feeding him at 8, then again around 10 and then going to bed and letting him wake me to be fed again which was typically around 1-2am. He has been sleeping 3-4 hour stretches.

    Now w/ putting him down at 8:30 and letting him wake to be fed should I pump before I go to bed around 10 or just wait until whenever he wakes and feed him.

    And what happens as he starts sleeping longer and through the night. Do I need to wake at some point to pump or am I ok to sleep through the night too?

    I should add Im exclusive BFing and pumping for stash.

    Well that depends on why you're pumping. How much stash do you have and what will it be used for? If it's just for occasional use then *I* wouldn't bother pumping after having a couple bottles in the freezer.
