I want to know things like how often you have to pump in the beginning to get your supply up, what to do with the extra breast milk as far as refrigerating or freezing and how to go about it. How to freeze and unthaw the milk. Just any need to no things about it. Thanks so much.Answer Question

By exclusively pumping, does this mean you have no intentions of nursing at all? That would determine the frequency of your expressing. I combined nursing with pumping. I fed on demand, which was about every 2-2 1/2 hours. I would initiate pumping on the non-nursing side so that only some of the hind milk was in it before switching sides. The nursing side would thus contain "pure" hind milk which I would add to the freshly pumped milk. I would pour this milk into a plastic bottle liner, date, seal and freeze. When frozen solid, I'd run it under lukewarm water from the faucet, to thaw. That took less than 5 minutes. I'd imagine if you want to increase your production, you'd have to pump every hour on the hour.
