When I started pumping at work, I was doing every 2.5 hours to get my boobs used to it. That meant I pumped 3 times during a normal work day, feeding my son right before I left for work, and immediately upon returning home. Eventually, I was able to space that out gradually, and went to only pumping 2x a day at work after a few months. In general, you should pump approximately as often as baby eats, maybe a bit sooner, just because sometimes you don't respond to the pump quite as well as the baby.

I pump every 3 hours which is when he should be eating, so my boobs are on the same schedule as the baby.

I pumped in the morning before work (either before or after feeding DD - she only BF'd one side), then at work I pumped at 9, 1215, and 330. Then I fed DD as soon as I got home. I will be doing this same schedule with DD2 when I go back to work.

BIG thank you to *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!
