okay so this might be a silly question but I really dont know the answer...
If I have pumped and saved some milk so that I can allow someone else to feed my son my breastmilk (ex: hubby and I going on a date night and will be gone during a feeding time, not going to happen soon but hoping it will happen eventually haha) anyway, since I would miss a feed, would I need to pump while we are out on our date or would I be fine just waiting to breastfeed for his next feed? (one, Im wondering if my breasts would get full and uncomfortable and two, Im wondering if skipping would affect my supply?)
Would your answer be the same if we were to be gone for say 2 feedings rather then just 1?
It depends how old lo is when u go out n how long you are gone for! U will probably just have full boobs but if u pump or feed as soon as u get back that would be fine n wouldn't affect supply!
When lo gets older and Ur supply is more established your boobs wont be as painful when full, sometimes when we are out n I miss a feed I just get tingles in boobs which is a bit uncomfortable but not too bad just make sure u wear breast pads!!!
