Calling all pumpers!
 
So who is with me in the "expressing" club? Any exclusive pumpers out there? Part timers? What pump are you currently using?

I pump once per day and use a Medela Advanced.

I pump at work and nurse at home. I use a Medela Freestyle at work and a medela pump in style at home. I pump about every 3-4 hrs at work and always pump before bed at home to make it to the next feeding without feeling too engorged as he is giving me 7 hrs at night between feedings.

I pump and nurse. My schedule is - pump when I get up, nurse after getting ready for work, pump at lunch, pump at 3pm, pump as soon as I get home, nurse either right after or about an hr after depending on when the sitter fed him last, nurse on demand the rest of the night, and pump once before bed if he is sleeping when I'm ready to lay down.

I use the Ameda Purely Yours. And I love it.

I'm a part time pumper and usually pump overnight when/if I'm engorged. I have probably over 60oz in the freezer, so I don't really need to do much more pumping. I only use milk when I go out on a session and will use it when I go out. I use a Medela PISA

Exclusively pumping using the Medela PISA.
I went straight to pumping this time and with my 2nd as I found out the hard way with my first that only one breast produces enough milk. I get around 20 oz a day and have to supplement 4-8 oz a day. I would like to have been able to breastfeed, but the nice thing about pumping is that DH can feed the baby in the night, MIL can babysit whenever we need and I know just how much she is eating.

Medela Freestyle, pumping all through out the day. I try to stick to every 2 hours but its hard to keep up with at work. Still supplementing with formula, pretty much come to terms with the fact that she won't be getting breast milk exclusively.

Pump & BF...mostly pump in morning and evening to build up a stash. I use the Medela Harmony manual...I can get about 3-5oz.

I BF exclusively on demand on my days off every 1-3 hrsI work three days per week 12.5hr shifts. I BF at 530am before work and pump 5-7 oz at 8am, 11am, 2pm, and 530pm. I BF as soon as I get out of my work clothes at 830pm and again before 11 when Luke usually is done until 2-4ish am. Occasionally Eddie brings Lukas to me on my lunch around 12 or 1ish so I adjust my schedule to match his feedings. If Eddie has to feed baby off schedule he texts me so I pump at the same time. Once I had to BF Luke in the parking lot at 730pm because as soon as he heard my voice getting in the car he demanded boobies. I sometimes pump at 2-4ish am because I wake up engorged and get 7 to 9oz. Occasionally I wake Lukas to eat if I don't feel like pumping. I'm using a brand new Medela PIS I splurged on last week when my milk dropped and I got worried. I love my new pump! Before that I was using my old PIS that I bought 11yrs ago. I worked yesterday and Lukas was up every 2-3 hrs all night to eat and is eating every 1-2hrs today and spitting up more than usual. He's being a little piggy and keeping my boobies making a ton of milk.

3 times a day for me. She still gets formula and BM, and I'm using medela in style.
