When is the best time to pump your breast milk? After a feeding? An hour after a feeding? When?
My concern is that I might pump and she might get hungry after I've already pumped out all the milk. I've heard that pumping in the morning is good. What about pumping right after?
Also, I've heard that the milk is different, and that there's "hind" milk or something that is at the end of a feeding. If I pump after a feeding, am I mostly pumping hind milk?
I want to pump so that if I ever want to see my friends ever again I can leave the house for more than two hours. My boyfriend wants me to pump because he doesn't like the fact that I'm the only one that can feed her. She's only had my pumped breast milk twice, when she had to stay in the hospital because of her billirubin levels, and when I graduated from college. She's about three weeks old.
