    When to start pumping?

    Need some advice. I am breastfeeding baby newborn. Wanted to know when did you start pumping. I was thinking of holding off for one month so baby is set on breast. I start working again in three months. Thanks

    I started pumping at 1 month, but could have started earlier. If you feel that you're still full after a feed then pump the rest. Some people find it easy to pump while feeding, this is when you get the best let down. Pump 1 breast while feeding the other? Try pumping at different times to find what suits you and baby. Don't forget to drink lots of water. Relax and good luck!
