    Default How much milk should I be getting?

    My little girl is 12 weeks and I'm pumping 2-3 times a day for 10min. I usually get 3oz total at each pumping secession. Is this about average?

    Thanks ladies!

    Are you pumping in place of a feeding, or after feedings? If in place of a feeding, 3 oz sounds good. If you're pumping after nursing, it's excellent. (Oh, and there's not really an "average" since all moms have such different bodies and different responses to different pumps. There are moms who can barely pump a drop and moms who routinely pump out 6 oz.)
    Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
    Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
