I'm pregnant with twins and I've been talking to an LC that leads my local LLL meetings and an IBCLC to help prepare myself (had a rough start with my singleton and hoping to avoid that rocky road this time around). Anyhow, the two wonderful women that i have been talking to are encouraging me to BF as much as possible and to start pumping to get my milk in faster...starting in the hospital. However, a friend of mine was told to not use a pump at all until her son was 2-3 weeks old. I'm a bit confused by this. I'm assuming she misunderstood what she was told and her LC just meant to stay away from bottle feeding that early? Is thers any harm in pumping to get your milk to come in faster so long as you are not bottle feeding what you express?
