    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.

    Are you drinking enough water throughout the day?

    Probably not as much as I should.

    If you're getting a little more dehydrated during the day that could definitely affect supply.

    I would have a 1 liter water bottle at my desk and refill it several times throughout the day. I found that on the days I forgot to bring a water bottle I definitely didn't drink enough.

    I took home my Sigg to send it back and never brought the replacement in with me.

    I've never been a big water drinker either, but I'll get back on it.

    So I think I figured it out. And it's going to sound odd but...I can't read the books that I've been reading while pumping. I have to do something else, like a crossword puzzle or a magazine. Too much story means no letdown. Blech.

    I thought it was too! But ever since I started on those Sookie Stackhouse books and then got sucked into other Sci Fi books I'm riveted. Too concentrated on the story to get a letdown it seems.
