    Eventually you'll get the same amount everytime. Pumping will increase your supply, but don't worry about not having milk. Empty breast make milk faster. So as long as your LO nurses as much as they want before you pump you should have no problems.

    thank you! I just figured out that my pumps motor is SHOT!! UHHGG
    The amount i was getting out went way down(3-4oz to .5oz) so... i triple checked EVERYTHING then my DH checked it out and thinks the motor sounds funny,so to Medela it will go in the morning! I tried to hand express but i just made a mess, i had to get out my lil hand pump im suprised i can still type! just 1 more hurdle to get through its a good thing im so stubborn
