Pumping time of day

Question:

Hi, I am going to be starting to pumping in order to allow my husband to feed my daughter on an evening and wondered whether the time of day the milk is expressed from matters, as in if I pump in the morning is that milk still going to be suitable for her on an evening or would it be better using milk expressed on an evening?

Answer:

Lana,

It is up to you when you pump during the day.  It is important to stimulate your breasts when he is feeding the baby as your body has gotten used to regular stimulation and if it is not stimulated it could affect your supply.  Just pump at the time she is feeding and then resume nursing at her next feeding.  Best wishes, Gina C, CLC
