When in doubt, ask oneself what are we designed for, in nature? So, mothers breastfeed right away, in nature (whether it be human babies or pupppies). One can start breastfeeding
now (5-10 minutes per breast) whenever the baby
needs to eat. Pump after each breastfeeding. A mom should drink fluids (water, tea, soup, etc.). RELAX, as anxious parents are not as successful.
