Re: Is pumping twice a day enough?
It sounds like maybe you're worried that you're producing too much? How long have you been back at work? I had a problem when I was pumping three times a day with producing twice as much as she would drink and then having engorgement all day Friday and Saturday, supply evened out on Sunday and then back to crazy pumping amounts on Monday. I have three day weekends.
I did drop down to two pumpings a day after a couple weeks because I just didn't want to have over 200 ounces of milk in my freezer. So I pumped twice a day from months 4 to 8 or 9, I think, and then I went back to pumping 3 times. However, my total pumping time was about the same - I would either do two 30 minute sessions or 3 twenty minute sessions.
