I'm so confused by the information I've read on feeding and also pumping and I'm hoping you can share what worked for you?!
I'm exclusively breastfeeding my newborn and she's going really well. I also want to pump and store milk for daddy to bottle feed occasionally. Also she will require surgery shortly so I want a 'store' of milk for feeding at hospital.
So here's my questions...
If I'm feeding from alternate breasts each feed should I pump on the other?
When should I pump? After I feed her? Before? How long did it take to have enough for a feed?
Or can I do it anytime?
When did you introduce the occasional breast milk in a bottle so DH can feed too?
Any tips on pumping and continuing to breastfeed as much as possible would be great. I seem to have plenty of milk too so I don't think I will supply issues.
