Hi, hoping someone can help me with a few questions I have about expressing breast milk. My DD is 2 weeks tomorrow and I'd like to start a small store of breast milk for the freezer so DH or grandparents can feed if I'm out etc.
I won't need a heap, I suppose just a little for the 1-2 times a week DD may be babysat. I have. Medela swing breast pump (haven't used it yet lol).
1. When do I express? Before feeding? After DD feeds? Between feeds?
2. Do I express from both breasts or just one? And do I empty the breast?
3. How often should I Express? I assume just once a day to get enough for the 1-2 feeds a week I'll need.
TIA...so much to learn!
