Ok, so I've heard the suggestion that it is good to pump one side while breastfeeding on the other. If a baby is supposed to be offered both breasts at each feeding, why does that make sense? If they aren't full after the first, then you're all tapped out by the time they latch onto the other side. Or is there a window at the very beginning (first months) when they aren't eating much, and this allows you to build up a reserve while increasing production. I don't understand when to pump while breastfeeding.
