    12 ounces is a lot. The majority of pumping moms on average only pump 2-4 ounces per session. So to you but don't get disappointed if you notice your pumping supply decreasing.

    They usually recommend pumping for 10-15 minutes. I would typicaly also get a second letdown. Breast compressions also help. I had the Medlea PIS Advanced with the letdown feature and noticed that if I turned the machine off and back on I would get another letdown.

    Thanks so much for this post, I will be returning to work in about 3 weeks and it gives me hope that I'll be able to pump and still give her EBM...
