I'm trying to build my supply but I don't know when to pump. I was told to do it after she feeds, but I don't get much and then it seems my milk is drained for her next feeding. Anyone else had to build a supply before they went back to work?

Try pumping in the morning, supply is usually best then. Also, even if you aren't getting any milk at first, keep doing it, the stimulation will tell your body to make more!

Ditto to Kris. I pump in the morning if I need to pump usually. I do pump a couple other times during the day if I need to build a supply in the freezer though.
