Re: Sick baby (1st time!), doesn't want to nurse
I think hand expression would be mostly for your comfort with her not nursing much. And, you don't have to worry so much about your supply. With a well established supply like you have with a one year old, your supply can go way down when they are sick, then when they feel better and nurse more, it will bounce right back up in a couple of days. Just express for comfort yourself and watch for plugged ducts, but other than that, don't worry about it.
