Breastfeeding: When to Start Pumping Breast Milk?

After a woman delivers a baby, she can start pumping breast milk immediately, but the milk usually comes two to four days after the delivery. 

If you're at home and are stockpiling milk or trying to increase your supply, try pumping an hour or so after your sweetie’s morning nursing session (or pump one breast while she’s going to town on the other). 

If you're pumping at work, try to pump on the same schedule as your baby's feedings so you keep your milk supply going strong.
