Hello I'm new to this forum. I have a little angel who is 4 months old and just started day care about 1 month ago. I pump at work 3 times a day and she is on the breast when she is with me otherwise. My first pump I get 8 ounces, 2nd pump 4 to 5 and by the third pump I'm lucky I get 4 and its a lot of work. I work four days a week. She nurses when we get home and then she is asleep by 7p and doesn't nurse again until 2 or 3 and then again about 6:30am.
I'm concerned about my supply. ANd also want to know if its normal to have more milk in the morning than in the later part of the day? Right now I'm pumping just enough to sustain her but I'm worried that won't last OR maybe as she needs more my body will adjust? I just watched a video about hand expressing and will try that but was curious if I should pump again at night before I go to bed to build up more of a supply and increase the freezer stash.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I don't remember having this issue with my son.
