Re: Will I get my supply back?

I think 2-4 ounces every 2-3 hours is normal. I nurse 100% of the time I am home but pump during my 24 hour shifts. I also aim for 2-3 hours between sessions of pumping and usually get 2 ounces from each side with the time frame. Pumping frequently is going to be more important than the large quantity you get from waiting. Emptying the breast every 2-3 hours tells it to produce enough milk to accomodate a feeding every few hours. Longer amounts of time between sessions will eventually lead to lower production. You're doing great mama! Keep up the good work!
