I’m going to be exclusively pumping for my second baby (due Feb 2024). I’m interested in antenatal expression at 37 weeks. Once my baby is born, how much colostrum should she be getting and for how long? I started breast feeding with my first before switching to exclusively pumping for her, so I wasn’t measuring colostrum with that pregnancy.
