A 19-year-old female asked:

Im on meds were i can't breastfeed for 7days how much and often do i need to pump so my milk doesn't dry up?

Regularly: Pump as often as you would breast feed to keep up your supply. 7 days is a long time.....So if you do not pump regularly then you will dry up..And preserve only the times you are pumping.
