My DD is almost 20 weeks old. I have been back at work for almost 7 weeks. When I first got back to work, I had no trouble pumping, getting anywhere between 3-5oz per session. I would pump 3 times at work. In the mornings, I feed her from one side and then pump the other side, usually getting between 2-4oz.
A few weeks ago, I started having trouble pumping at work. My first morning pump session I just can't get a let down and I end up barely getting 1oz on most days. But then my next two pump session (usually around 3-3.5 hours between sessions) I pump just fine, getting anywhere between 4-5oz.
I'm not really understanding what is going on during that morning session. I hadn't made any changes to my routine. The only thing I could think of was I had caught my DD's cold, but it was really mild, just a slight runny nose and a little bit of a sore throat and coughing, and it only lasted a few days at most. But it's been over a week since that cold, I would have figured if that was the cause, I would be back to normal by now.
This is what my schedule typically looks like:
