I need some advice. With my first son (born at 32 weeks) I started out pumping since he was in the NICU. I continued to pump/BF until he was about 6 months old. The whole time I struggled with my supply. A week ago I gave birth to Zev (38 weeks) and BFing is going great he has a good latch. However his weight has dropped a bit (from 8 lbs 13 oz to 7 lbs 8 oz) and I'm scared my supply isn't good again. He is having lots of wet & poopie diapers, he is content after nursing, I hear him gulping, and he isn't fussy.

I was wondering if there would be any harm in pumping once or twice a day to help build more of a supply?
