Quoting Jennybananna:" Just trying to give you options. I know for me I cannot pump anything to save my life. "
I know thank you for theadvise, it just that my LO has a very sensitive tummy that is why we had to hold off on solids, he can't have any formula and I think that on a day that will be hard for him I need to make sure I get him my milk.
I am also going to contact his pediatrician and see if they agree that pump and dump for 24 hrs is necessary. I know that sometimes Dr's are extra precautions when it comes to things like that. The pediatrician has a book on all medications and how they affect breastfeeding. The pediatrician might tell me that it is only 18 hours or something... who knows. I am going to double check with them just to see.
Since I have about 3 days to pump for only one day I think I can plus the hospital pumps are really good. I produced a huge oversupply for about 6 months. I sure wish I knew that is what that was and would have stored some of that milk.
I don't know how to make the milk the right temp for my LO
