I was able to position DD on the boppy and help her with one hand then hold the pump up to the other breast. I had to turn on the pump/have it all ready to go close by, latch DD, then grab the pump.

Re: pumping while ebf

Everyone gave great tips. I usually pump right after her morning feeding, or I will just pump one breast if she is going to feed again soon.

I will position the boppy on my side and put DD on it (like a football hold) so the other breast is free to pump. I'll turn on the pump first, attach baby, attach pump.
