Pumping at work

How many times a day?  How long each time?  And how much per session do you get?


I bf at home.  I pump at work.  I pump 2 times a day, once in the morning, once in the afternoon.  I go nurse Cam at lunch.  I have to pump for 30 minutes each time and only get 4-5 oz each time.  It sucks.  I am taking fenugreek and still barely get enough.  I need 10 oz a day.
