JulesLuvsSean:I only pump once a day right now and I do it first thing in the morning (milk supply is good then).
how much milk do you get?? i'd LOVE to pump only once a day, but i'm afraid i wouldn't get as much.
this. right after he eats.
SethandSara:Does milk supply increase as time goes on? I can pump early in the morning and get about 4 ounces. Since my son grazes the ENTIRE day (seriously....he rarely naps), when I pump then, I only get about an ounce or two. I'm thinking about waking up in the middle of the night to do it too. I always worry about him not having enough to eat or me not having enough when I pump.
Keep in mind that how much you can pump does not necessarily equal how much baby gets when he eats. I am a horrible producer for the pump, so when I go back to work, I pump for the sake of keeping my body on schedule, but I can't keep up with his daytime meals (at least, this was the case with the first two) but they never had trouble getting enough when I was home on vacations or weekends.
