I started work 4 weeks ago and have been pumping once a day in an 8 hr work day since then. I get about 6-7 oz each time I pump and my now 11 week old baby consumes about 4 oz of pumped milk each time. He needs about 3-4 bottles when he is away from me during the day. And then I exclusively bf him right from the time I get home till the next day. I also pump once before I leave to work .So I am actually pumping about 3 times in a day with a total output of 20-22 oz
Well, my question is since I am able to pump only once during the day would my milk supply become less over time? I really want to provide him with bm till he reaches his first b'day atleast,but I am just not able to pump more than once during work. We do not have a seperate room which I can use and I actually go to another office, who were kind enough to let me use their conference room even when I am not their employee!I have been able to keep up with his feedings so far but I fear that my supply would soon reduce.
I have also noticed that whether I pump twice in a day or once after a longer duration the output remains more or less the same. Can I continue in this manner or should I be doing something different?
