Re: increasing pumping output?

Having to pump is not fun! I am totally in the same boat as you. DS is a big eater and I only get about 11 oz's while I am work... but he eats about 15-20!

I have started feeding him in the morning, then pumping right afterwards. Then I pump at work a couple times, then when I get home I feed at his will until I put him to bed... pumping one last time before I got to bed. This is working right now and I actually have a little stash in the freezer in case I have a bad pumping day. Although the stash is small, it's enough to feed him for a couple days! I also pump on the weekend or days that I am not at work to help keep my supply up.

Good luck!

I have to get better about pumping when I'm not working. I just don't even want to look at a pump if I do'nt have to.

Your little guy is just a couple weeks older than mine. Glad I'm not the only one with a big eater.
