Re: Working Mom's

That's absolutely to be expected. The baby just does a much better job than the pump. If she is looking to increase her milk production because she isn't keeping up with the amount her child eats while she is gone, I would suggest what the pp have said. Pump an extra time. This will empty the breasts and produce a let-down, which signals the body to make more. She could also try massage during pumping, or breast compression(compress and release). Or she could try reversing his schedule and have him nurse more at night(but I don't know how anyone could do this and hold down a fulltime job!) On the other hand, if she is producing enough milk and baby is happy, mom can be happy with what she is doing now. Sounds like her body is adjusting fine to the schedule. Tell her she is doing a great job and giving her baby the best!
