I'm due any day now with my second child. My oldest is just shy of 1 year, and I will be pumping milk for him. I know I need my supply for the younger baby to be established, but I'm not sure when I should start pumping for the older one. I don't want to start too soon, but I know my body needs to get the message that it will be producing milk for two babies, not just one. My first child is not currently nursing, and has been weaned since 6 months. We are working towards getting him to nurse again, but no luck so far. I hope he will show stronger interest once he sees his baby brother nurse. If there are any mamas out there who have pumped for an older child while nursing a younger child, I could use your help and BTDT advice! Thanks!!!
