Re: Does my pump routine sound ok?

This is what I do.

Between 4am and 5:30--baby wakes to eat or I wake her to feed (5:30). She eats one side--my side I get less on when I pump
5:30-6:30-- I either pump the other side (my better producing side) at home or on my drive to work and get between 4 and 5 oz
9am--pump get 6 oz
12:30--pump--get 4oz
3:45-9:00pm feed baby on demand
9pm-4:30 am-- baby sleeps and sometimes wakes around 1am to eat.

~Daycare is really good about makeing her last bottle around 1pm so that she is ready to eat when we get home. We are home by 3:30.

~On the weekends I always pump the other side after her first am feeding and sometimes after her 2nd feeding.

~Forgot I also eat a big bowl of oatmeal (pyrex 2 cup bowl packed) w/flax, honey and brown sugar every morning for breakfast.
wife and mom-- no other special labels. Just trying to do the best I can.
