Question re-lactation or ???

I need
 


the details..I have nursed most my babies until they weaned. my baby is a week old and for medical reasons is not able to have breastmilk ( like her sister Lillian) . it has been so hard on me to not just put her to the breast.
 
we are planning on adopting a newborn in late april. we have discussed it thoroughly with all parties and everyone would like us to nurse her. so do I keep pumping to establish a supply? or quit pumping and start again closer to the due date?

I would continue to pump until the baby is born. It is easier to pump and (if you have a deep freezer you can save it for up to 6 months I believe) continue to lactate rather than attempting to lactate after you have dried up. KWIM? Since April isn't that far away (yes 4 months seems like forever). Good Luck to you
 
and congratualtions on your new babies birth.

Definitely pump. I am attempting to induce lactation with our 2nd adopted daughter (I've never given birth) and it's not easy. I think you'd have an easier time at it since you have had a baby, but for that short of a period, I'd pump and freeze and you can still nurse (instead of a bottle) using the EBM in an SNS or, the one I prefer, a Lact-Aid.

That's great that you are adopting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Congratulations!!!!
