Agreed, but remember you only need enough in your stash for your first day /time apart. Then that day, pump as many times as she has a bottle (so three or so for a work day). That milk will go with her to daycare the next day. Any milk you bring home from daycare can go in the freezer.

Otherwise, relax and love your pump. Literally, its providing something wonderful for your babe and you. A lot of women talk about resenting /stress over pumps and that can reduce your letdown. Also massage your breasts while pumping. Babies suck and apply pressure to get milk while pumps only suck.
Thanks, that's really helpful. I'll definitely nurse her before we weigh tomorrow!
