My son had some super long sessions yesterday, but also I found that he was a bit more sleepy, but had 13 pee diapers and seemed ok, so I didn't supplement until the evening after somewhat shorter sessions. Anyway his last bf session ended at like 11pm. At 1230 I had to wake him up for the every two hour feeding, and h kept getting frustrated and popping off the breast, so I had my husband give him a bottle with formula....I went and pumped. All I got was 15ml, like nothing. Baby boy is back at the breast because that is what he prefers, but I'm sure he isn't getting much at all. Should I be worried that he isn't getting enough?

Not if he is wetting his diapers and pooping normally. The pump is not an indicator of supply. Some women just don't respond to the pump and its not as efficient as your baby at drawing at the milk. As long as he isn't dehydrated, wetting and pooling normally he is getting enough.

Very true as I got about 15ml from pumping one morning and that afternoon we had a lactation consult and he got 3oz off the breast that I only got 15ml from

Never judge how much your baby may be getting by how much you pump.

Dito what everyone else said. The amount you are able to pump can be effected by so many variables...your settings on your pump, where you pump, how relaxed you are, etc. as long as he is peeing and pooping regularly, he is doing just fine.
