My son is a week and a half old, I have been breastfeeding and pumping. Majority of the time, my son is nursing and I am pumping for storage. How often should I pump while breastfeeding? And how much supply do I really need? I am not sure if I am wasting my time pumping since I prefer nursing directly. I am home from work for four months so I really won't need to feed him via bottle until close to that time and occcasionally if I need to step out for my husband to be able to feed. Any suggestions on when I should pump while breastfeeding would be greatly appreciated. I also want to make sure I keep up my milk with my son.
Thank you in advance.
