Cat, I started exclusively pumping at about 2 1/2 weeks and only got about 3/4 of an ounce out of BOTH breasts at first, I just pumped as much as possible and eventually after a week and a half I was up to nearly 4 oz per pumping session. Aria doesn't drink but about 2-3 oz when I give her a bottle, so I figure its enough On the bright side, today I didn't pump at all- we have eased off of the pumping and back on to the breast and she seems to be doing okay? FINGERS CROSSED (and toes)
Something that helped me was to compress the breast a little while pumping- also do you have a good pump? And make sure to fiddle with your settings- I actually get MORE milk when I have the suction on the lowest setting. Lina told me to eat oatmeal, and I drink water by the gallons Did they figure out why she wasn't getting the milk out of you? DId they check for tongue tie? Just curious
