i kept latching on during the first few weeks. best way to increase supply. i only pump when my son do not like to latch on and i get too tired at around week 4-5. i personally will not recommend pumping too early. the first few days you will produce colostrum, just enough to fill your baby's stomach, which is as big as a 50 cents coin. and your baby's stomach is very small at the beginning. no point pumping too early, you won't get much milk.
just sharing my breastfeeding journey on my blog here. https://hippothoughts.wordpress.com/...eding-journey/
