Hey there, I've started working about 2 long shifts/week, anywhere from 14-16 hours. I manage to pump only 2 times while away and usually get 10-12 oz in total, which keeps my son 13 month old son happy for the following day. I never was a good pumper, I have always just nursed him.
Anyways, here's my question/comment. When I return home, my little guy works very hard to bring back up my supply, I feel bad, he suckles all night and it drives me nuts, because I know he isn't getting what he is used to the rest of the week, it takes him a few days to get the supply back up to where he is happy. Any one else bad at pumping at work? maybe its my manual pump, or maybe I just hate pumping!!! am I playing russian roulet, will my supply actually go away one of these times? I need to be more diligent while at work, but its hard.
