I've been feeding my three week old about every two hours (or more!). I usually feed on one side, then change her diaper, then on the other side. She usually feeds for about 20 minutes on each side. Sometimes she waits a few minutes before wanting the second breast, but she usually does.
My question is this: when am I supposed to "fit in" pumping? I feel like if I pump right before feeding, then I won't have enough for her to eat, and if I pump after, there won't be anything left. Two hours hardly seems like enough time (although I know it is). Moreover, sometimes she wants to cluster feed - but I don't always know when that is.
I've been using a manual pump, though I plan to get an electronic one. I'm just introducing the bottle (which went well).
