So ive been questioning my suppy past few days as my let downs were taking longer and i didnt feel as full, etc.
Last night I worked and compared my output from last saturday night...just 1 week ago....I work 7p-7a...and pumped twice while at work last night...10pm and 2am...
I pumped almost half as much tonight as I did last saturday.....that's nuts...in just one week....I pumped 5 oz [both breasts] in First pump last week in 10 mins..only 3.5 last night [total both breasts]...in same time ...so I kept pumping for more stimulation...got another letdown n ended up with 5oz total in the end still but took twice as long...pumped for 30 mins...
so basically i was easily getting 5-6 ounces total in each session [from both breasts] last week and now its taking me 30 mins to get that much?
I really dont NEED the milk that I pump as I have a big freezer stash , but I want to keep pumping longer for stimulation...thus i end up getting a bit more.
but, what could be the cause of the abrupt change? thanks so much!
on a more positive note though my let downs are not taking near as long as few days ago..yaY!
