Re: Lemme see your stash!

Right now I have about 1100 oz in the freezer. My dd is 6 months now. Before I went back to work I had about 500 oz stashed (DD was 3 1/2 montsh then). I got the 500 oz by pumping in the morning after dd's first feeding because I was usually really full, pumping at night before I went to bed and then maybe pumping in the middle of the night depending on if dd would sleep through or not. All in all, I would usually freeze anywhere from 5-10 oz a day while still bfing her. After I went back to work full time, I would pump 3x a day every 2-3 hours and would come home with about 18-20 oz. I also pump right before I go to bed so I freeze about 20-26 oz a day. I am constantly rotating my milk supply so I have a log sheet that tells me what comes out of the freezer to go to daycare when dd needs it. I use tubs to help me organize my milk. Each tub contains about 100-160 oz. I was pumping to freeze since I was going back to work. I was afraid that my supply would drop and I wouldn't be able to keep up with dd's needs. Now that I know how much she eats I am pretty confident we will make it past the 1 year mark no problem.

Re: Lemme see your stash!

holy cow!!! I'm seriously jealous over here!! I am so impatient when it comes to pumping, that I usually just pump a few days before I know I'll need it.

Re: Lemme see your stash!

Wow, I only have 10 oz! I take a class 2 nights a week so I need enough to put my son to bed 2 days a week. That's it. Sadly, our social life is lacking so we really don't need any for the weekends. When I do I just pump that day so at least it's fresh.

Re: Lemme see your stash!

Here's mine, as of this morning. It's all from the 14th of this month to today. It's going to it's new home in 3 days with whatever else I pump. Yes. I'm a donor mom! I donate over 1000 ounces a month to a beautiful baby boy, locally.
