Re: 5 weeks and never seems full
Hi, and good work getting thru the first month! Agree with PP. also, pumping two ounces while nursing -- esp if he is in a growth spurt -- is actually fine. Are you pumping in the am? Just keep pumping your two ounces daily to build up your stash for the first days. On subsequent days you'll use what you pumped at work, which youll find is much more when you arent also nursing. You can do it!
ETA: i would drop to one pumping session in the morning. What you need most right now is rest and sweet time with your baby! You really will have enough once you are pumping instead of nursing! You might try a day or two away from LO, at least for a few hours, to try that kind of pumping out before you go full days, if you need the reassurance.
