I'm a full time working mom and pump about twice at work. I pump in the morning when I first wake up then 2 times during the day and nurse lo before he goes to sleep. Between my 3 pumping sessions I get enough for one feeding or a little more.
My LO has a hearty appetite, eats solids for breakfast lunch and dinner and milk. Including my commute time, I'm away from him 12 hours. He drinks 24 ounces with the sitter.
On the weekends I just nurse him and I increase his solids to satisfy him. He seems content which confirms how sucking gets more milk out than my pump at work. However, he seems more content when his getting more milk as he does during the week, while I'm at work.
At this point I'm not sure if I should just offer him my breast during the morning and night then feed him forumla for when I'm away from him. I don't feel full anymore and feel I can go my time at work and not feeling uncomfortable.
