Supply?

I gave birth January 23 to a 32 weeker and have been pumping every 2-3 hours with one 4 hour stretch at night. I'm currently pumping about 20 oz a day. It's been very slowly rising daily (20 oz yesterday, 19.2 the day before, 18.8 before that). Should I be concerned about low supply at this point? I'm making more thsn he's eating for now, but am worried about long term. I ordered Dom but it won't be here for a few weeks.

If your supply is rising and you are making enough for your baby, I think you're ok.

Re: Supply?

It will continue to rise the more you pump, just keep up with the pumping. Supply and demand.

Thanks for the responses. He has been home for two weeks on Monday and is now ebf! No more pumping for us (except when I get too full) and he's packing on weight quickly! Not to mention the 300+oz in the freezer!
