    It's so hard not to panic sometimes. I always seemed to scrape by with just enough EBM for the girls. I'm done puming now, and it's a relief.

    Only the instant kind, but yes.

    It's starting to feel uncomfortable too, but I don't know if I'll get anything.

    I'm gonna run some errands and try again when I come back

    Relax. Relax. Stress is the enemy and stressing about not pumping 'enough' is a slippery slope.
    It [lower pumping output] is a common thing that can happen after a established routine is 'solid'. See this page for some info you might not have in your barin stores

    (BTW this is Eme - )

    Just had another thought while pumping myself...

    Are you using the same pump you had with K? Could the motor be wearing out?

    It is the same one but I had the motor replaced at some point.

    So I just pumped and got 6.5ounces. Should I just be going longer between sessions? That would leave me pumping only twice. Wouldn't my supply suffer?

    so you have gotten 14.5 ounces out today? Maybe you got more out now because you only got 2 ounces out last time?

    When I dropped from three pumping sessions to two I was still getting the same amount out for the day, which was surprising to me. But I'm not sure that would have kept up or if it would have dwindled further. I stopped pumping when I got four ounces out each time.

    I would be hesitant to cut out a pumping session. Or would you still be able to fit 3 in waiting longer during the day?

    I don't think I would be able to fit in three if I went for longer than 3.5hours in between.

    I nurse Lu at 5:30/5:45a then pump at 9am when I get to work, then another session at 12:30 and then another at 4 before I leave at 4:30. If I went to 4 hours between each session, I'd only be doing two sessions before I had to leave to make my train. I nurse her as soon as I get home at 5:30p.
