I don't think I have a really big supply of milk(I know it incrases with increased nursing). One of my breasts barely works, despite trying to pump a lot in the beginning. What kind of pumping schedule should I start to get some back up milk in my freezer. My baby is still ebf, so I have to feed her constantly also. TIA for anay help-I'm totally lost here!

When i was pumping to get a stash going, I would nurse my daughter on one boob and pump the other, i get the best let down for that. I would try pumping with each daytime nursing..your supply should definately increase while you do this.

Thanks for the responses, ladies. I just think it would be a good idea to have some back-up milk. I don't want to ever have to feed my dd formula for any reason. When I pumped in the beginning, I hardly got any milk-it was hardly enough to save. I think I wasn't letting down. New mama-didn't know.
