    Hi Melissa,
    I have a 2 month old daughter and I am breastfeeding . I have never given her the bottle but want to start introducing it only if I have to go out. Sine I have never pump before I really don’t know the quantity that she drinks. I planned on leaving for the day to run errands and have my husband feeding her. What do you recommend ? When should I pump? The day before after a feeding or the same day before I leave the house . Please help. I was under the impression that if I pump before a feeding then when comes the time to feed I won’t have enough milk.
    Thank you in advance

    Go to my site under videos and watch the videos called When Should I Pump – I would recommend pumping for just 5 minutes after each feed starting at least a day or two before. xo
