Pumping problem?

I started pumping for the first time yesterday.  The 1st time I got 1 oz, 2nd I got almost 2 oz, and this morning I didn't even get 1 oz.  Am I doing something wrong?  I've been BFing since her birth and haven't had any problems with her getting enough to eat.  (she gained all her weight back in the 1st week). 

 I have to go to school to pack up my room this week for 2 days, so I need enough for her to eat while I'm gone.  I know I'll have enough, but I need to pump and have a stash for the fall.

 

Thanks.

  • It definitely sounds normal, especially if you are EBF right now and your LO is less than a month old.

  • Sounds normal to me...especially given your DC's age and the fact that you are EBFing. You'll get more over time.
