Not sure if this goes in the pumping area or not...but another question from me :-)
I just went back to work this week and started pumping regularly everyday for 3 sessions during the work day. I get between 2 and 4 ounces at each session.
Baby is not eating much at daycare yet. She fussily takes 3-4 bottles but only eats about 1-1 1/2 oz right now. She's getting better every day though (the first day she had 2 bottles).
So, I'm sure these changes are causing supply changes for me but I am oversupplied for most of the day it seems. I always have OALD and oversupply but it's gotten quite a bit worse.
* I would love to pump out the oversupply but am not really stashing milk as I make what I need each day and we don't have a good area for frozen storage. Since I don't need the extra milk, is there a good way to relieve my oversupply? Just wait it out? Hand express? I suspect I shouldn't pump.
* Would shortening my day time pump sessions help? It just seems like this pumping during the day has made my supply shoot up during the day/night to an uncomfortable state almost all the time.
* How much should my baby eat during the day, she's 3 months and 10 1/2 pounds. I'm not certain how many oz she eats when I breast feed? Is it about what I am pumping? 2oz per breast (I block feed so she only eats one breast per feeding).
