now I have a real baby related question, and no one on the BF board is responding:
I've been back to work for 6 complete weeks and have pumped using the 9:00, 12:00, and 3:00 schedule. I have an oversupply and frequently pump all that DD will eat the following day in my morning session alone. This morning I got 11.5 oz, and then at noon I got 5.5 oz. I haven't seen my supply diminish due to work yet; in fact, at first I suspected pumping both sides three times a day made my supply increase since during my leave I block fed.
I haven't had to use my freezer stash yet. She eats between 8-12 oz/day (I'm gone 10 hours), and she nurses frequently in the evening and through the night (reverse cycling a bit, I think).
I want to BF for at least a year, and she's only 3 months old; so I'd hate to do anything to risk losing my supply. WWYD?
Okay, back to fun and games now...
ETA: I am in the process of getting approved to send some excess to a milk bank.
