Re: No milk today!!!
Hey there mama! I think your milk supply has evened out to keep up with your baby. Any time I pump after Lilah eats I will only get half to one ounce out too. And I used to have oversupply and could get 10 ounces out at once in less than 5 minutes!
So, you said you have a freezer stash. That's good. Generally how you give your baby milk while you are away for a work week is, first day they get frozen. Second day they get the pumped milk from the first day you are at work, etc.
You don't have to pump all the milk your baby is going to drink while you are working BEFORE you go back to work. I freeze the milk on the last day of the week and then use the oldest milk in the freezer on the first day of the week so that my freezer stash rotates.
It is stressful to pump while your baby is at home. You won't take them milk away from her next feeding, she just might have to work harder for it. I used to get so stressed out about that too when I was trying to build up my work freezer stash. What I started doing was pumping the other breast while she was nursing in the football hold.
Good Luck. You will be ok!!
