    Can any of you actually say you can do both at the same time?

    I did I had a pump in the car that way if we were driving I could pump and feed with a bottle, also if I was due to feed, but DS was asleep. It just was easier

    How are you having trouble? do you want to pump? if you do, then just before his next feed, pump one side and feed him the other, then give him the bottle. I also had too much milk, so pumping helped with that

    We did both without any problems. I only pumped for the first 4 months due to some nipple size issues. So he was not really bf'ing a lot but we still tried everyday. I know that sounds like we had problems but not really

    I don't pup anymore, but I used to do both. It took some practice to make it work, but the output was worth it.
