Hi there, so with my LO I nurse, pump, supplement with formula and supplement with pumped milk AND I'm trying to build a little supply for when I go to work. My schedule is all over the place. Does anyone have any advice on how I should schedule out everything during the day? Thanks!

You're a busy mama!! I only ever pumped/bottle fed OR nursed, so I don't have any practical advice, just wanted to say good luck and I'm impressed

I'm in the same boat. I try to nurse first, then feed him whatever pumped milk I have, then I pump, and if he's still hungry, I give him what I've pumped.

I did the same but didn't last long because the schedule drove me bonkers and I felt like I never spent quality time with DS. I eventually moved to exclusively pumping and was able to build a stash of 500+ oz!
Are you supplementing with a bottle after you nurse? Can you bottle feed while you pump to save some time?

I pump after almost every nursing session and while my baby sleeps. I could probably stop but I don't sleep well so I might as well pump!
