Hello all. I am a first time mom with a beautiful 9 week old baby boy. I am EBF, however, I am trying to pumpt to start saving milk for trips to the in-laws as well as for my return to work. I'm only going back occasional part time but I still need enough for at least one feeding while I'm away.
I can only pump 1oz a breast. I have tried covering the pump, drinking and so forth. I am feeding about every 3-3 1/2 hours during the day. He is sleeping through the night. Should I be pumping more milk at a setting or is this normal?
When should I pump during the day? I'm afraid he won't have enough when he eats, and I'm too tired to stay awake at night to pump. He goes down with the last feeding about 1030 and wakes at 0500 for the first feeding. He'll go back to sleep and wake at 0800 for good. Thanks for any advice
