  • It is best to wait on pumping and bottles until after 4 to 6 weeks to let your body and your baby get the hang of breastfeeding. If you must pump though, morning is when you have the most milk. Try to relax and think happy thoughts. Visualize your baby drinking. Visit the La Leche League website for more helpful information and advice.
