    Default hows this work?

    So my Lo has had to have f-supps (we are using the Kellymom link on weaning, but its a slow prosess) so I had ben pumping to increse supply (among everything else) Well now that he is getting better at the breast and the number of times he BF have increased to about 7-8x in 24hrs Im wondering how many times should I be pumping in 24hrs? I was pumping everyother hour, then decreased to 8-10x in 24hrs, then down to 6x B/C his times at the breast were increasing. He gets about 8-10 bottles in 24hrs (3-4oz) half are EBM the other half formula BUT now Im finding it hard to get in 3 pumpings a day! Am I totally guna mess up my supply? Im only able to pump 1-3oz per session, I was gettin 2.5-4oz. Im pumping AFTER he BF, but after the bottle DS ALWAYS wants to BF (sometimes comfort but other times he eats again!) I go back to work in 3weeks so I will be pumping 3x in the 10hrs Im away. And I want to be able to give LO ONLY Bmilk eventually. ANY & ALL advise welcome This is the first baby Ive pumped with
