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

I didn't really have issue. My son was essentially EBF (besides some beginning foods) until about 2 weeks before he turned 1. I did eventually have to start relying on the freezer stash heavily, and while it was okay it wasn't a HUGE stash. I was out of the house 4 days a week.

He has a mix of milks for a few weeks. I think because the whole thing stressed me out the pump stopped getting anything and around 1 year I had to accept that he would get cows milk when I wasn't around. We did parttime bf until 18 months.

I did well. But I remember it was hard starting out, and thought it might be better to avoid that...
