    Default Pumping Sessions and Amount

    So I am curious to know if my pump out put is normal or if I should see a specalist. M-F I pump 4-5 times every two hours and average between 1.5-2.5 ounces. I would like to know what everyone else gets because I have read alot about people getting 4-5 ounces per session but not sure how often the mothers are pumping. I have been drinking Mothers Milk Tea for about 4 weeks but I forget to on the weekends and don't pump on the weekends either occasionally I will pump once or twice. I have also recently started taking the Fenugreek pills hoping they will help.

    during the week, i pump 3 times a day at work (sometime i pump at night before i go to sleep). my first pump session of the day, i can get about 5-8 oz total (depending upon when dd last nursed...if she didn't nurse all night, then i can easily get 8oz...maybe even 9oz. if she nursed at 3am, then i'll get about 5-6oz at 8:30am when i first pump at work). the remaining pump sessions average about 3-5oz total. i am currently taking fenugreek (3 capsules 3 times a day and drinking mother's milk tea).

    Along with how much/how often, I would like to know "how old" is your lo. I'm wondering if the older the babe is, the more you'll be able to pump off??? I'm not sure...
