My Breastfeeding and Breast Pumping Schedule

Your Health

I just cried over spilled milk. Five ounces of breast milk gold, gone. To understand just how tragic this is, you have to consider the amount of time I spend either nursing or pumping. It’s about 100 minutes per day. You breastfeeding moms can relate, right? So much of our lives is spent producing milk. But we do it because we love our babies and that’s what matters. 


 It is a lot of time, though. I’m always curious to compare my schedule with other moms—maybe they know a better system! Please share your breastfeeding and pumping schedule in the comments below. Here’s a look at my schedule during the work week. On the weekends, I exclusively nurse.
