Want to know how much milk I pumped TOTAL over 4 pumping sessions? 1 ounce. That's right, only 1 ounce total over 4 pumping sessions. But you know what? I am so against throwing away ANY breast milk at all that I totally saved that 1 ounce, kept it in the frig, kept it cold with a freezie pack and carried it on the plane with me, brought it home to Ohio, and promptly gave it to Mason in a cup upon returning home. And he drank it right up.

    And you will also be happy to know that he picked right back up nursing as if I had never left. I am SO happy he wants to continue nursing!!
    That's awesome, Buff! I have been pumping while I'm in Alabama and I get 1-1.5 ounces each time I pump, 3x a day. I'm sure I was producing more a couple months ago, but I really made him cut back a lot recently.

    I'm glad Mason picked back up on it, I'm hoping Levi will nurse again when I go home for Thanksgiving.

    Exclusively pumped for Lance Oct 07
    Nursed until just before he turned 3 Levi Oct 09

    Do you have extra milk? Consider donating!

    "So I was welcomed by the consolations of human milk; but it was not my mother or my nurses who made any decision to fill their breasts, but you who through them gave me infant food, in accordance with your ordinance and the riches which are distributed deep in the natural order." -St Augustine

    I know, right?! I know he's getting milk because I can hear him swallowing, and see milk on my nip afterward... but yeah, I'm sure he's not getting that much these days.

    And I even hand-expressed after I was done pumping, and still only got just enough to barely cover the bottom of the Medela bottles. I'm sure my DH was all when he saw me saving that teeny bit of milk, LOL. Ahh well, I'm glad I did it... reminded me so much how grateful I am to be done pumping... I felt like a newbie because it had been so long since I had pumped!
