I have three children. My oldest I didn't nurse. I was very young, in school, and again I was young. My middle child is now 2.5 When I started nursing her things went well. I would pump 12 oz or more each time I pumped from the time she was 6 weeks old. So I would have plenty of milk for her for the next day if I pumped 3 times that day.
My one question is, with my third she is 7 weeks old now and I am only pumping approx. 7 oz total each time I pump. sometimes alot less. What do I do? (When drinking from a bottle she drinks about 5 oz but I am trying to keep ahead of her so I don't have to supplement formula.)
Second question, sometimes i get 2-3x's more out of one side than another, is that normal?
Third question, I work 8:30-5:30 most of the time sometimes longer... But I feed the baby and pump before work most of the time, then when I finally get a chance to pump, it is between 11:30-1:00... And sometimes I don't get to pump or feed the baby until I get home.. could that be hurting my supply? Because I had the same schedule with my middle child and it never seemed to effect my supply...
