As title really, anyone any ideas when the best times to express without my DS noticing would be? Panicking a little sad

an hour after a feed. Will need a few pumping sessions I imagine.

Thanks PenguinArmy - will try that, hoping I can do it 3 or 4 times before I have to leave him. Just hope it doesn't reduce what he's getting in the meantime.

How old is your DS and how frequently does he feed?

It won't reduce what he gets as your breasts will make more as he feeds.

Do you normally feed from one side or both? If only one then try pumping the other as he feeds.

Pump at the same time as you feed, and once in between feeds if you can.

just to clarify that was a suggestion, not a fact. sorry have ds in hand so not waffling as much as normal.

also agree with frak on both counts (i) don't worry about him and (ii) if he's a one side feeder then during or just after a feed.

He normally is a one-sider but sometimes decides he'll take some from the other. He's 11 weeks and normally feeds every 3-4 hrs during the day and 6 hours at night.

What is ds ds1 ds2 and dd???

SarahScot Sat 22-Oct-11 19:48:11

ds = darling son
dd = darling daughter
ds1 = darling son 1
etc.

There is a full list somewhere on the site.
