I have a 2 week old and are trying to prepare to go back to work. He eats 3.5oz. at every feeding. I have been pumping and nursing in between. I think my milk supply is low and was wondering if anyone new what is average for a pumping mother. I pump 2-3 times a day and only can collect about 6 oz at a time, which is just enough to keep up with his feedings, not nearly enough to get any stored for when he goes to day care. I am looking into purchasing a better pump (medela advanced), but first would like to know if it will help increase what I am producing now. I guess really, is is going to be worth spending the 300+ dollars, or just continuing with what I have now.
Any input would be great.
