ok, so today is my first day at work and I'm pumping in lieu of feeding for the first time this morning (I have pumped after feeding to build a very small stash). I'm noticing that I'm pumping a bit more than the 3 oz bottle that I left for DD for her midmorning feeding. I think I'll end up with 4.5 oz. Now I've been going to a breastfeeding group and while there we have a scale that I can use to measure intake. The group also meets around this time of day.
So does this mean I should have left her more? Am I just lucky and will get a little extra to store?
I'm just worried that if i'm producing this much at this time that its been because she's eating it and I just didn't leave her that much.
ETA: when i've pumped after a feeding to build my stash, its been after my our 6:30ish feeding and only that feeding, not any other, so I should have extra now from pumping for my stash.
