    I have never felt a letdown when I pump - I am hoping someday I get it! My LO is 7 weeks, and when I pump I usually get 3-4 oz. Once I got 5. I keep trying for the letdown though!

    i was pumping every 3 hours for 3 weeks ( i had a preemie!!), my first letdown would happen at about 1 minute or so and give me maybe 1.5 oz from each breast and I'd have another letdown at usually between 12 and 14 minutes. I ended up with about 6 oz when I was finished...combined... hope this helps
