I'm starting to pump to freeze and wondering how much I might actually need to be pumping. I only seem to pump about 2 oz per 15 min pumping session.
Depends on the time of day and when DD last bf'd. This morning, I got 4oz from one side in about 10 minutes.
Usually I get about 3 oz in 15 minutes. I pump a few times a day, when I have time.
on the left side i can get 5oz
on the right 2.5-3 oz the most
and that within 10min -15 min
I am breastfeeding and also giving DD a bottle of breastmilk (1 per day). When I pump in the morning, after DD's first feeding, I can usually get 4-5 oz. I use an electric double-pump and usually pump for about 10-15 minutes.
If I have time (or energy) to do another pumping session, I usually get about 2 oz. The more you pump, the more your body will respond by producing breastmilk. I get the most when I pump in the morning (that's when your body produces the most milk). I also eat old-fashioned oatmeal each morning because it's supposed to encourage the production of breastmilk... hope that helps!
I EBF and give 1 bottle of BM at night (4-5 ounces).
I pump twice a day, once in the evening and once in the morning. They vary greatly in production due to the different times of day, but generally I get about 7-10 ounces per day.
I'll be returning to work in 2 weeks and pumping at the office. So I'll be curious to see what I'm getting then.

I pump 3-4x/day (early AM, late morning/early afternoon, sometimes a late afternoon, and then an early evening- before I go to bed). I get anywhere from 2-5oz total per pump- depending on the time of day, etc...
I EBF during the day (unless I take a nap and my mom or MIL watch him and then he'll take one pumped bottle)... and then DH feeds him 2 bottles at night while I take a 4 hour sleep shift.
i pump at least 3 times per day.
morning is the best pump and i can get about 5-6 ozs total. the rest of the pumps are about 3-5ozs @ each pumping.
i'm feeding DD strictly breastmilk. i have about 60 ozs in the freezer and she goes through about 16ozs at daycare each day. otherwise i breastfeed her
