Heading back to work/Pumping question
So I'm getting ready to head back to work in a week or 2. Haven't decided exactly.
How much are you deciding to give them each feeding while you're gone? When I pump in the morning while I'm nursing Max, I get between 2-3 oz. Sometimes I'll get 4 but that isn't very often. He typically eats every 2-3 hours.
My mom is going to watch him while I'm working. How much should I have her give him each feeding?
I'm worried about my supply once I go back. With DS1 once I went back my supply started to drop and I'd like to avoid that. Around 4 months I started supplementing with formula.
I'll be pumping at work (they have a lactation room) and I should be able to pump every 3 hours or so. I know it's not every 2 hours like he's been eating but I don't think I can get away with every 2 hours. Ideally I'd like to pump no more than 3 times while working which I think will work.
One thing I didn't do with DS1 was pump while I nursed in the morning. I've been doing that this time and plan to continue. Should I just pump while nursing in the am or should I do it more often? For those of you who pump while nursing, how often do you do it?
