Past two days i pumped 3 times and left breastmilk to mom to give it to my 2,5 months old boy. does it diminish milk supply or cause nipple confusion?

Breast feeding: Breast feeding or breast pumping on regular basis every 3 hours helps to stimulate milk formation. Also you need to eat healthy & drink lots Of fluids. Good luck & enjoy your baby.
