Re: When did you start pumping after your LO arrives?

With my first I think I waited like 3 or 4 weeks, whatever the recommended time to wait "to establish good BFing" 3 years ago. But then I felt like I was swimming up hill because I wasn't making any extra than what my son was drinking and it was discouraging. I did end up with a little bit of a supply but I wondering if starting earlier would make since... maybe week 2... I imagine it'll also depend on when I feel I can actually pump and still make enough for baby.
