I'm just starting to get the hang of it and normally I get 2 ounces out of a session. Finn is a month old. Is this enough? Also, the other day I was completely engorged and pumped 7 1/2 ounces and he was able to drink 4 ounces comfortably. Approximately how much do you get out of a session and how much is your baby drinking?

I get about 3-4 ounces per session. But I have no idea how much he's taking in since I haven't given him a bottle yet.

2 ounces is GREAT! I try to pump in approx 2 oz increments. I CAN pump more but at this point, I try not to pump more than 4 oz at a time. I freeze 2 oz per bag, and offer 2oz in a bottle at a time. Here is a great resource to help out. We just talked about this in the July DDC and this was helpful to read:

Two total, not per breast... Is that really "ok"? Seems low compared to others.

I think it can vary from person to person just depending on how frequently your baby eats . 2 oz is good, I think. I pumped a lot with my first and that's about how much I'd pump at this age; as they get older, you produce more. Drinking lots of water helps too .

Don't forget that the amount you are pumping doesn't reflect how much your baby is eating. The baby is more efficient than the pump. But yes, 2 oz total is plenty.

I get 4 total in the morning, but only 2 total in the evening. I give Madeline a 1 oz pumped bottle in the morning to save time.

I'll have to read that article. This morning I was engorged on one side and pumped almost 4ozs. I love that it gives me the freedom to get extra sleep and David gets some bonding time.

I'm not sure in oz. I'm getting 60-90ml consistently every time I express. For the most part it's enough to satisfy baby. Sometimes on her evening feed she's still hungry after and has a little formula to top her up.
