I also got next to nothing for the first few days. Your supply has to build up. How much you build depends on how often you pump and for how long. Lena is getting all of her milk by nursing, but I am pumping to store. I pump abut 4-5 times a day in addition to feeding and I am getting about 10-12 oz per day. (One of those pumps is in the middle of the night.) I pump for 15-20 minutes at a time, usually. Today is day 10 of pumping. At first tho, I was only getting an oz or so between both sides per pump. It took a few days of sticking with it to build supply. It takes a while, but you're on the right track. Your supply will build if you pump enough. You just have to pump a few times a day for long enough.
