Y'all must be sick of me by now.

How long does it take to "replenish" supply after a feeding or pumping session? Assuming the baby or pump is doing a good job of draining the breast.

Good question!

Totally not an expert, but from what the midwife said at the antenatal class, what is in your breasts is simply the 'foremilk', the milk with all the carbs that baby's need is in the back-milk and that mostly keeps going as long as baby is sucking (though comes out slower the longer baby feeds)

Might be wrong, but this is what I understood from the classes. Feel free to correct me if this isn't correct!
