I have been pumping regularly at work once a day and have been getting around 4 to 5 oz with my PIS pump.
However, my 8 month old daughter who has started on solids requires more milk than that. I have been using the bm to mix it in cereal, etc. so the quantity seems less when she is ready for her afternoon milk session. Is there a way to stimulate more milk supply. I tried it yesterday night after my baby had her dinner but there was no let down and no milk. I tried it this morning before coming to work around 8 AM and it was the same story.
I can only pump once in my 9-5 job. As soon as I go home 5:45 PM, my daughter wants to nurse and she gets up around 2 Am for a feeding and then at around 5 0r 7 AM. Also, is that enough feeding sessions? She has EBM at 3 pm an in cereal for breakfast and sometime if the dinner was not filling then another feeding at 9 PM.
Also, I used to get around 7 oz. However, looks the milk supply is dwindling and now I just get 4 or 5 oz. in a session when obviously with my daughter's increasing age and appetite she needs more.
Any input in milk supply and schedule etc. will be appreciated. Also, how to get some milk at night when whole days tiredness affects the milk supply.
