13th DAY
Next day mother will start work. All four feedings will be substituted with the expressed milk from the bottle. Mother is ready to start work with enough supply of her milk in the fridge or freezer.

She may also wish to leave an extra bottle of milk in case she is late. She must also remember to continue nursing the baby when she is home for the rest of the day.

However, the mother should also remember that in order to maintain her supply, she must nurse or breastfeed her baby after office hours, at night and on the days she is not working. It will be good if she can have extra one or two bottles of her expressed milk at all times in the freezer.

The stimulation of the baby’s sucking is very important in maintaining the mother’s milk supply. EXPRESSING will not maintain a full supply of milk.

That reminds me of an embarassing moment. I thought a woman was pregnant and was pretty sure she is. Lucky I never asked her but instead, whispered to the husband to clarify. He told me no, she is not pregnant! So ladies, please get fit and trim. You do not want to look like you are pregnant again and appear like you need to find out baby development 33 weeks.
