Hello, my DD is 6 months old now and I should be back to work in a month or so. In the last month we needed about 4-7 oz fomula supplement in order to have a correct weight gain and diapers output. I nurse on demand day and night and in fact she never goes more than 2 hours without nursing. I am worried for when I'll be back to work. When I pump I never seem to get more than 1-1.5 oz even if I occasionally replace one feed with pumping. I am able to get milk for about 5 min when pumping, then no more. I need to stop, wait 5-10 min and pump again if I want more to come.
Could you tell me what a normal pumping schedule should be to keep supply up and provide enough for 10 hours outside home? I won't be able to pump and drive.
I am using now a medela symphony, but i should buy a portable pump, could you suggest a very efficient one?
Thanks a lot for the help!
