I currently work full-time and pump 2-3 times a day to feed my 4 month old baby. I typically produce between 8-12 oz a day, but my baby is drinking much more than that from bottles. On the weekends when I am with her all day and am able to breastfeed, I never run out of milk for her, so I know I am producing enough.
I have a feeling that the pump just doesn't do as good of a job as she does at emptying my breasts, or maybe her various caretakers (our family and close friends) are too quick to offer her the bottle. Is there a way to maximize what I am pumping?
