Burning through milk stash
Been back to work 2+ weeks now and I'm not pumping enough out to get my DD thru the next day. Our nanny has been going into the freezer stash nearly everyday, only for about 3 oz, but that stash is going down down down. I'm gone 9 hours most days, I nurse right before I leave and when. I come home, but on my best day I pumped 10oz and that's due to me buying a Medela PIS to replace my Tommee Tippee pump that was severely underperforming.
Spoken to Nanny about pace but really using the 1 to 1.5oz per hour rule things are as they should be for 9 hours. I just don't get enough volume and I can't meet up with them to nurse during the day.
I've searched the forum for this issue but I'm not seeing my solution. With the amount I nurse at home, including overnight (we co sleep) and pumping 3x at work I honestly don't think I can find anymore time to pump. I got a mere 1 oz in my 3rd session today and brought home about 9.
No way I want DD to have anything but breast milk. Do I just need to bite the bullet and pump 4X at work and try to get an overnight session in too even tho I nurse during sleep hours? There is very little spare time right now unless I give up more sleep.
