Re: Not pumping enough milk!
Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new baby and on making it to 2 months of nursing!
The amount you're currently pumping is on the high side of normal for a mom who is pumping after a feed. When you were pumping 8 oz at a time, that was definitely oversupply. A breastfed baby takes just 2-4 oz when he nurses, on average.
You'll probably see more milk once you're back at work and pumping instead of nursing, rather than in addition to nursing. Breastfed babies generally need about 1.5 oz of milk per hour of separation from mom. Because daycares often overfeed, it may help to send your milk in relatively small portions. A lot of moms will send feedings consisting of one 2-3 oz bottle with a 1-2 oz "chaser" bottle- that way the daycare provider will be forced to pause the feeding while reaching for the second bottle, giving the baby a chance to decide whether or not he's really still hungry.
