Should I pump?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
This morning, Jack had "breakfast" instead of his usual "breastfast" before school. I'm now uncomfortably full (and he won't be home from school until 2:15.)

I have no clue what his nursing routine is going to be tomorrow (although I know he'll nurse plenty on the weekend.) Should I pump out the extra milk or just suffer until 2:15?

how uncomfortable are you? I would probably take a really hot shower and hand express just enough to relieve the pressure.

I would pump just enough until you feel comfortable. There's no way I'd want to be painfully engorged all day and I don't think a little pumping will increase your supply all that much.

OK, I just pumped about an ounce. What do I do with the ebm now?

Put it in the fridge/freezer?? Will he drink any BM from a cup??

I would definitly pump whatever you are comfortable with. If he is going to contiune to nurse during the day when he doesn't have school (weekends, holidays, etc) then I would pump as often as he would be nursing so your supply doesn't go away during the day. I would also save the milk. Will he eat it with cereal? In a smoothy or other foods that you add milk to?
