I have been back at work for about 1.5 months now and my baby is 14 weeks. We breastfeed everyday when I'm not working and my son is gaining weight well.
I only work 2 12 hour shifts a week, so my baby takes a bottle of 3 ounces every 3 hours. I pump about 3-4 times in the full 12 hours, but am shy anywhere between 2-3 ounces of what he is eating during my time away. My freezer stash is dwindling! So, during the week, I am trying to pump an extra session once a day to make up for the difference.
My question is, how much is "normal" to pump in between feedings. My son eats every 3 hours, so I pump at around 1.5-2 hours in. I used to get 1-2 ounces at a time during these sessions, but now I am barely getting an ounce. I have been doing massage during and just started taking Fenugreek a couple days ago. How much should I be getting? I am started to get sad about needing to give him formula soon.
I would appreciate any advice or tips or to know if this is normal or not. Thank you!
