Re: Growth spurt=pump more frequently?
I never pumped more during growth spurts. I nursed on demand when I was home and she made up anything she was missing by nursing more. But like pp said, if you aren't keeping up with what she is taking in, you might want to pump more either at work or at night/on weekends to make up the difference.
Your breastmilk changes composition, becoming more concentrated as baby gets older so no, you don't need to increase in volume. Most BFed babies never take more than 4 or 5 ounces at the most and often when they are drinking more at a time like that, they space the feedings out more so they don't really increase the total volume much.
