I want to pump for future use, but I'm not sure how I should start. Should I wait a little longer? When I do start when should I pump, in the morning? How long before/after a feed? This is all so new to me.

I started pumping as soon as my milk came in. Saige is getting plenty from breastfeeding but I was so engorged that I wanted to relieve some of the pressure. I figured I could either store the milk (freezing it) or let my toddler drink it - lol. I hear it's good (especially if you're going to pump regularly) to do it the same time every day. I pump after baby eats but I'm not sure what they recommend. Just make sure you drink a ton of water before breastfeeding/pumping

You also have more milk in the mornings than in the evenings so mornings are a good time to pump.

They usually recommend waiting a few weeks until your milk supply is regulated to start pumping but I always started pumping right away. I figured I had the extra milk so might as well make use of it.

I pumped in the mornings with DS, he would go the longest stretch without eating at night time (nice, I know!) so when I would wake up for the day with him I would feed him but my boobs would be so full still so I just pumped the extra milk and froze it. I pretty much started pumping as soon as my milk came in because I needed relieve the engorgement even after feeding him, I had ALOT of milk! I could get like 11 ounces with pumping even after feeding him! I ended up with alot of frozen milk in my freezer

This how I'm feeling right now...while I'm feeding whenever she lets it go I soak through whatever is under me...I learnt to put a receiving blanket there now and the opposite breast soaks through the pad.

I'm going to start pumping right after my morning feeding at 9:00 am. I am also pretty full after each night.. so think it will feel good and I'll get the most milk. I'm planning on introducing a bottle when she's about 3 weeks old. She's pretty well established at breastfeeding, so hoping I won't have a problem with nipple confusion.

I exclusively pumped when Adriana was a baby and I pumped every 2-3 hours, 24 hours a day.. Lots of work.. But you can do the same thing when your nursing or after you nurse.. Pump when your baby is sleeping.. Just make sure you drink lots of water..

With the routine I was in, I had 3 months of BM stashed in my deep freezer.. Which was great to have when I returned to work..
