I went back to work this week feeling good having over 500oz of frozen milk in the freezer (three months of stocking up). Well, it's a total pain! My freezer is full of breast milk first of all. Second, my mom is having a hard time remembering to use frozen first, fresh second ( I send a bit of fresh milk just in case because it will last an extra day if DD doesn't eat it all). Total, I thawed out 30oz, and so far I will have to freeze 50oz of fresh milk. So I'm still pumping way more than DD is eating!
Lesson learned! Trying to eliminate at least one pumping session to slow my production down. I was just so scared of not having enough when I returned to work.
