if you express milk do you need to wait a while for the breast to 'fill up' again before bf baby?or can you put them on straight away?just feel a bit empty at the moment!
thanks

no, you can put baby on straight away

Yes, straight on is fine. BFing is supply and demand. The breast makes milk continually, it doesn't fill up and wait to be emptied and a baby actively sucking encourages milk production.
