I'm breastfeeding my two week old baby girl and would like to start pumping so dad can help with feedings during the night & also because I will be going back to work soon. I don't know when to pump though. I tried pumping one night but when I pumped I pumped all the milk that my daughter was to have at her next feeding so my breasts were like empty. Our pediatrician said to wait at least 2 hours after the last feeding to pump to get the most milk but 2 hours after the last feeding is when it is time for my daughters next feeding. So how can I pump with out skipping one of her feedings? When is the best time to pump breast milk? I really need to start pumping before long but am just so stuck on how to work the timing.
