Re: XP: EP Questionnaire

  • EP Questions: 

    1. How old is your LO? 6 1/2 months

    2. How much are you pumping each time? first pump of the day 16oz, all other pumps 6 to 7oz

    3. What's your pumping schedule?

    currently i pump: 

    wake up pump 5:30am - 16oz

    9 am pump  -6 or 7oz

    1 pm pump 6 or 7oz

    5 pm pump 6 or 7oz

    9 pm pump 6 or 7oz

    4. Did your schedule change if you are back to work?

    i was pumping every two hours at first, round the clock. but when my DS stared sleeping thru the night i did too! so it was every two hours during the day and not at night.

    when i returned to work (i work 7-3) i was pumping when i woke up at 5, then on my way to work, at 9am at 11am and at 2pm then again when i got home at 4pm 6pm and 8pm.

    i gradually started cutting back to every three hours, cutting out the driving pumping first, now i'm at every four hours.

  • 1.  3.5mo

    2. pump roughly 1.7oz per hour I go between sessions, so usually 12-18oz

    3. I pump 3x a day, 7am (16-18oz), 2pm (12-14oz), & 10pm (13-15oz)

    4. I work for super small company, so no maternity leave.  I returned to work 3 days after having each baby!  I did pump 6x a day to begin with, then worked my way down.  Will drop to 2x in about 6 weeks and wean off completely in about 9 weeks, baby will be 6mo.  I have a HUGE stash in freezer, about 300 6oz bags, so DS will be on BM for at least 8mo of his life.  Did the same for DS #1 and it worked out well.

  • I just dropped from 6 pumps a day to 4 over the past month (and I'm getting a ton more btw).  I don't keep a strict schedule.  I pump when I get up between 5-6:30 and I get roughly 11oz.  Then I pump around 11/12 (6-7oz), 4/5 (6-70oz) and 8/9 (6-7oz).  LO is 5 months and I go back to work in 2 weeks.  My plan is to pump while getting ready (this may be overly ambitious), pump once at work, in the car on the way home, and right before bed.

    LO is 12 weeks.
    I pump 5 x a day
    6am 1216 oz
    1000 11 oz
    2 pm 9 oz
    6 pm 9oz
    10 pm 10 oz.

    Started out with 7 ppd at birth and cut back to 6 at 8 weeks then 5 with my return to work this week. Plan to stop to 4 ppd in another month. I EPed with DD and maintained this same schedule. Dropped to 3 ppd at 6 mo and 2 ppd at 9 no. Stopped at 11 mo with enough freezer stash to get her to 13 mo. I have a mad freezer stash now as DS only takef 20 to 24 oz a day and I get between 50 up 60 oz.

  • LO is 10 1/2 months. 

    Just dropped another session, starting the weaning process to be done by 1 year.

    3 pumps a day. First pump - 2am - 15 oz. Second pump - 11 am - 8 oz. Third pump - 6 pm - 8 oz.

    SAHM. Started off by pumping every 2-3 hours. Then went to 3-4 hours after 12 weeks. Then went to 4-5 hours after 6 months. Now down to 3 pumps a day.
