Hi, MOMS, my name is Chany and I am new to this board. I am about to have my third child and want to embark on the wonders of breastfeeding and pumping. I was wondering if any of the other moms on here could give me some advice. I have read and watched many videos from experts and different moms. I max confused and not one seemed to answer my lingering question. Which is I want to breastfeed but I also, want to pump and I was just wondering if there was a schedule that worked for other moms or that just works and i should do.
What I have read...
I read that after baby feeds I should pump about 30 mins. to 1 hour after or 1 hour before the babies next feeding. I know about the storing, but I am just wondering if this schedule works.
The main reason...
I am planning on breastfeeding because my husband wants to be able to feed and bond with our baby too. It's our 3rd and I havent done this for any of our other children but really want to with this one considering it could be the last opportunity.
So please if you have any advice please leave it. Thanks!!
