SEbastian is only 2 weeks old and during the majority of those two weeks my DH was home so I had time to pump but could only pump once since he ate all the time. He still eats the same amounts but I don't have a lot of time. I also have a 5 and 3 year olds running around. Sebastian doesn't sleep alot during the day and does have a longer nap just after lunch time but he drains me before that nap. When should I pump? Does it matter? I would pump when he goes for his long nap but i'm afraid theres not much milk there and i am also worried that if there was, i'd be taking away from a feeding if he was to wake up and want to nurse since he nurses for a long time (an hr approx). I just don't know what to do with the whole pumping thing. With hubby at work, the other 2 kids aren't exactly preoccupied enough to let me do that. Any suggestions?

I pump the side we just nursed from a few times a day. Usually in the morning as I'm very full after our four hour sleep. I do understand the other kids running around and the time factor which is why I'm down to pumping a few times a day instead of after every feeding like I was. Sometimes I only have time for five minutes but try to do ten.

I have no time or desire to pump this time around, but when I had dd she only nursed on one side and I'd pump the other side while she was eating. It was hard to juggle at first, but i got the hang of it.
