I am wanting to pump a bit for my 1 month old so he can be babysat or for when I go to the gym etc. I don't quite understand how to do this when i stay home though. I mean when and which side etc do I pump when baby is with me all day? i don't want to steal the milk he needs throughout the day....

thank you tasha_mae for the great siggy!

First of all, good for you. Second, you wont take any away from him. Doing double duty will help to increase your supply. I always liked to either nurse on one side and pump on the other at the same time OR pump first and then feed because your pump will never empty your breast like your baby. Good luck!

I totally agree with Whitney, you will not take from him. The more pump or take the more your body will produced. So maybe when he is napping try to pump some, it may not be a lot but it will start building your supply. Then your body will think it needs to produce more, and in turn give you more to pump...if that makes sense.

I also agree with Whitney. From the beggining we did pumping and nursing. It worked out great and you will find a good rythm. Im going to do the same thing this time too.

I didn't make enough milk and had to pump to increase my supply. Sounds like the ladies here have good advice.

A friend of mine gets up early in the morning, to pump a few hours before the baby wakes to eat. She built a great freezer stash that way. I believe she pumps both sides.

I agree also with all the above posters and to add that you may try pumping after each feeding as well.

I always pumped while baby was nursing on one side and I would pump on the other at the same time. I got a lot out that way since I would leak from the opposite side anyways I might as well "catch" it and use it for later. Good luck!
