I have a good friend who just had her 4th baby a week ago. She is in the small percentage of Women who just doesn't produce breastmilk (and yes, she's tried absolutely everthing to make it work.) Her last was exclusively fed on donor milk until about a year and she's ramping up to do the same with this one.
Once my baby arrives in 6 weeks or so, I'd like to start pumping so I can contribute to her stash. With my first, I leaned towards oversupply, so I did very little pumping, but I'd like to plan on pumping once a day or so for my friend's baby. My question is basically, when to start... should I be pumping right from the beginning to make sure I have adequate supply to do both, or should I wait until my supply has settled down a bit to avoid some of the risks of oversupply? And if so, when would you start? (Obviously this is assuming everthing is going well with my newborn.)
Thanks for any advice!
