My baby will be 5 month old next sunday, I pump 3 times a day but recently the amount of milk I get is smaller. I'm getting 3-4oz from both breast each time, before the holidays i used to get 6.
I nurse my baby in the morning at 6am for 40 minutes, pump for 20 minutes and get 4-5 oz, then, at work I pump at 11 for 30 minutes and get 4oz, Nurse my baby at 1p.m. for 40 minutes, pump at work at 4:30 p.m. and get 3oz, and nurse my baby at 6:30p.m., 10pm and 3am, all for 30 minutes.
I'm concerned becaused my baby in the morning (while i'm at work) drinks 2 bottles of 6oz each, and in the afternoon (between 3 and 6) drinks 2 bottles of 6oz each, and I'm not getting that amount when I pump.
I need to know if this is normal, and what to do to improve the amount of milk. Sometimes I think is my pump. please, I need help because I want to nurse my baby at least until his 6 month
