Hi, I am a new mom, my baby is one month and one week old. I work outside home from 8-5 every day, I am currently in maternity leave and I return to work on February 2009. Francesca has a great latch, breastfeeding has been wonderful, no cracked nipples, no sore breasts, no back pain...great supply for her demand. I have been breastfeeding her on demand since her birth and I want to continue to give her breastmilk even if I return to work, my mother in law will be caring for her when I return so I can trust her giving her my milk, the only thing is that I don't know how to increment the supply in order to start a stash of milk in my deep fridge.
Should I pump when she is done sucking or before? what is the best container to freeze the milk?
I will appreciate your help very much
