If I can increase my supply to 3 oz each time I pump then I can just go back to nursing him 5X a day...that would be SO much easier!
Just remember that a baby is much better at getting the milk out then the pump, so if you are getting 3 oz out at a pumping session, your baby might be able to get 4 1/2 or 5oz out nursing!

Good luck!
