Pathetic pumping output at 18 mths!
I could really use some reassurance here, I have been pumping the last couple nights about 2 hrs after my lo goes to bed and the most I get is 1-1.5 oz! I'm trying to get enough so that Grandma can put her to bed while dh and I have a very rare night out. This seems so low to me, I know you can't tell how much she is getting but I can't imagine she is getting the recommended 16 oz per day. She nurses 4-5 times but its usually only 10 min or so. Is this normal at this age? I want to be sure she gets enough breast milk since she is allergic to dairy and her diet is limited. Am I worrying too much??
