Hello. My little one will be 3 months on the 31st. So he's just shy of it. I am working full time and pumping as often as I can at work (usually once every 3 to 4 hours.) My son is having no problems whatsoever, and he is starting to sleep a little longer through the night. (Last night he slept 5 hours straight, ate and then slept for another 4).
My concern is with the pumping. When I first came back to work I had an extremely healthy supply. I could pump 8 oz in 10 minutes during my first pump of the day. Then slowly through out the day the amount pumped decreased. But my concern is, it seems almost over night the amount I am pumping has diminished drastically. This morning, my first pump of the day I was only able to get 2.5oz in 10 minutes. I am using a Medela Pump In Style.
Yesterday I managed to get 3 and 3.5 oz through out the day which is good, because on MD advice (since he is gaining weight so plentily) we are only bottle feeding him 2.5oz of expressed milk each feeding. And he seems happy with that. But I am wondering if I should be concerned that my supply has so drastically changed. I know right now I am still able to at least pump enough for a feeding each time which is good, but I worry that will continue to drop. The thought is heart breaking because I had intentions of nursing for a year.
