i don't see why i am stressing out about my milk supply...and i mean stress. :P


What is normal when it comes to pumping output and changes in pumping output?

Most moms who are nursing full-time are able to pump around 1/2 to 2 ounces total (for both breasts) per pumping session. Moms who pump more milk per session may have an oversupply of milk, or may respond better than average to the pump, or may have been able to increase pump output with practice. Many moms think that they should be able to pump 4-8 ounces per pumping session, but even 4 ounces is an unusually large pumping output.


and reading about other moms going through the same thing...

la leche working and breastfeeding forum - pumping issues

i spoke with one of our hospital's lactation consultants and she recommended that i drink mother's milk tea and the new mom's support group. i have to go find that tea and maybe visit the support group some time soon.

ian came home today!! Yay!!!!
