Breastfeeding and pumping.
Hi mummies, i want to know if any of you do pump even when you are breastfeeding? My son is 2 months old and he feeds on demand. So sometimes he will go for an hr, 2 hrs, sometimes every 30 mins. Depending on him. He also nurses for comfort or before he goes to sleep. So you see, i dont have the time to pump esp when he feeds every hr or 30 mins or sometimes wants to nurse before he naps during the daytime. And ive read some where that if the baby manages to empty the breast, theres no need to pump. So here's what i want to know. If any of the mummies here does BF and pump or if there's any of you just BF and dont pump? I wish to BF him till he's 2 or longer and im afraid that if i dont pump, my milk will decrease because of the lack of stimulation or whatever. I also read that "light" breast does not mean empty. Its just your body are accustom to your baby needs and is now adjusted to your baby's timing. And for as long as your baby still suckle, you are still making milk. Can anyone explain or share your BF journey with me. I couldnt BF for long with my #1 because my working hrs was irregular and it took a toll on me and since im a sahm now im looking forward for a longer BF journey.
