To build a supply, is it best to pump right after nursing or pump between nursing??

I don't get much of anything if I pump after nursing. I get the most in between..like an hour after nursing. Does not matter what time of day it is for me.

I'm only getting about 1.5oz after I nurse. So of I pump in between it won't effect my supply when it's feeding time again??

I have no clue if I'm doing it right or not. I just know if I pump right after nursing I get less than an ounce and it's very frustrating for me. I also feed on both boobs at every feeding..I just wish I knew what I was doing when it came to pumping and nursing. I'll be watching this thread because I really want to know what others are doing as well.

Are you wanting to increase your supply overall or are you asking how to build a freezer stash?

If you want to build a freezer stash, then it it best to add in an extra pumping session a day. It's best to start with one extra so you don't change your supply too much. It should be baby who regulates your supply if you are BFing (assuming that he is peeing and pooping enough and that there is truly no supply issue.) So say he feeds at 6 am and at 10 am, then 8 am would be a good time to pump. You would then have to pump at the same time every day because you are telling your body that baby is eating at 8am and to have the right amount of milk ready.

If you pump after a feeding, you are telling your body that baby needs more milk at that specific feeding and that will affect your supply for that time of the day. Even if you don't get any milk from the breast you are pumping from and continue to pump for 5 minutes, eventually you will produce milk for that 5 minutes worth of pumping because you are telling your body that baby needs it.

When DD was born, I pumped after every feeding because I almost lost my supply due to her tongue tie. Eventually, I was able to get my supply back and exclusively BF her but it took a long time.

HTH!

If you Google pumping and going back to work, there are lots of sites that have schedules and tips to help you maintain a balance between pumping and BFing. Good luck!

Yes!! Thank you!! He eats almost like clock work, every : hrs unless he's really tired and sleeps longer . He also just started eating for 20min on each side instead of 15...... I wonder if that's because I've been pumping a bit after feedings??? So he hate at 8:30, he'll want to eat again at 11:30 so I should pump at 10?

Yeah, I would pump around 10 then you can see how it goes from there. When do you go back to work?
