Pumping for an Occasional Bottle

Have you ever wondered, "If I am breastfeeding all the time, how am I supposed to ever be able to pump milk for a bottle?"

Here's how:

After breastfeeding your baby, pump both breasts.

Try to do this around the time when you seem to have the most milk. For many women, this is in the morning. Perhaps your breasts feel fuller or heavier in the morning, or baby only feeds from one breast rather than her typical two. You are more likely to get a higher yield if you pump at this time than if you pump at a time when your breasts feel more empty after breastfeeding.

Pump within about 15 minutes of finishing breastfeeding. You don't want to wait too much longer than 15 minutes before you pump because you will start to cut into the milk that is refilling for your baby's next breastfeeding.

Don't worry about how much you get out. You may get one ounce total or four ounces total; that means nothing about how much your baby is getting to eat from the breast and has everything to do with your milk supply. Actually, it makes the most sense that you would get very little out when pumping because your body isn't used to making milk for the pump, it is used to making milk for the baby!
