Today was my first day back to work My LO is 6 Weeks and we did great with breast feeding while I was home. We have been feeding him on demand about every 21/2 to 3 hours and a little longer at night(about 4 hrs) I was finding it hard to find times to pump to stock up for when I would go back to work, so I decided to pump on one side while feeding him on the other. I was able to get 6 3oz bottles made up for starting him off. Today daycare said he ate almost 4 of the bottles. I was able to pump 4 bottles for him while away. It seems as if I am literally only producing what he is eating. What if one day he decides he wants more!? I would be out of my stock. I also know that eventually he will begin to eat more and I am worried that my supply will not be enough?! Should I continue to pump on the side that I am not feeding him at night to increase my supply?? I thinkn I am getting worried because this Friday I will be working a 12hr shift and am worried he will run out at daycare.
Thanks for the help and support!
