Had my 1st child on Monday tonight (Thursday) I went to pump as normal and thought I was just wasting my time but was amazed to have milk actually come out!!! I got 100cc! Yay!

Congrats on your first baby!!! Glad your milk has come in. It was 4 days with my first. Any reason you're pumping already? It's exhausting! :-)

Can't breastfeed because I have a rash on my boobs my dr did not want him touching it but he said the milk should be fine! He told me to pump if I wanted to have him having my milk! I want the BEST for my son and since I can't give him my boob I'll give him the next best thing!

Strange! If you end up exclusively pumping, there's a group here for ep moms that can give you tips. You need to pump every 2 or 3 hours to bring in and keep your supply up. Baby will need 24-30 ounces, now (we'll not quite yet, little newbie!) and at 12 months. And make sure bottles are like 2 or 3 ounces, no bigger, or tummy will stretch out and you'll end up in a position where you cant pump as much as baby has been accustomed to eating. Do you have a good double electric pump?

Exclusive pumping is hard. If we seem skeptical of your doctor's diagnosis it's only because we don't want to see your plans to breastfeed get ruined by a doctor who unnecessarily has steered you away from putting baby to breast. Does he think it's a staph infection, or a yeast infection? Has it spread to other parts of your body or to your husband?

I would just cover the rash with a dental dam or a bandage.
I would not exclusively pump because of a rash.
