Re: Losing milk supply
I understand your concern about being able to leave adequate amounts of expressed breastmilk for your baby while you are at work.
Here are some suggestions
calculate how many hours you will be apart from your infant, because many mothers leave the same ounces of breastmilk as hours apart from baby. so if you and your lo will be apart for 6 hours per day, the amount of pumped milk would be 6 ounces left in 2 ounce portions.
The more times per day you schedule a pumping session the more milk you will produce. so if you pump 3 times a day using a double pump and if you end each pumping sessions with a hand expression just to milk the ducts your production should recover .
