I was a Neonatal ICU nurse who helped many women who wanted to BF their sick or premie baby/babies
DO NOT pump while pg--as the others said, could cause PT labor. Besides, just like everything thins & dilates easier the 2nd time, the milk will prob come in sooner 2nd time--usu does.
To help it come in soonest:
a) never wait to feed the baby, when they're ready to eat--feed them
b) do not have the nursery feed during the night if you stay in the hosp.
c) you can pump after nursing to help speed things up
d) drink something every time you sit down to nurse the baby
e) you can drink special tea--fenugreek (sp?)--it helps
f) eat oatmeal every day-0-don't know why it works, but it seems to help a lot
