When you pump how much milk are you getting ?

When you bottle feed how much milk is baby drinking?






I got 5oz this morning and he is eating about 4oz at night when hubby feeds him.

Pumping at work gives about 5 oz every 4 hours. At 8 weeks old he only eats 2-3 oz at a time...but eats every 1.5-2 hours. I am keeping up with his needs most days.

I average out to four ounces per pumping session every three hours... But Isabell is eating every 2.5 hours or, if she waits three hours, she often wants a one or two ounce snack. So, I'm having to supplement about four ounces every second day.

I only pump right after a full feeding so I only get about an ounce. I've only given her one full bottle when dh and I went to dinner for my bday. I pumped a little over 3 oz that time. It was about 3 hrs after I last fed her.

I am a major over producer, so I pump about 12 oz every 4-6 hours. I make 4 oz bottles for him, but he always seems to leave .5-1 oz in the bottom that I dump. He eats every 3 hours religiously.

I find the will to pump about once or twice a week. Usually when I am a little engorged from a late feeding. I get the most when she tandem nurses. Today i got almost 3 oz. i am freezing that!

She's only had 2 bottles and I think they were about 2 oz each - more for practice than for hunger.

I get very little when I pump. I was overfull last week and tried to pump some out. Only got half an ounce from each breast.

i never used to get a lot pumping, until I started doing it when she was nursing on the other side. I wish I had octopus arms, because it's a little challenging, but I get better output. Might be worth a shot.

I'm the same. I don't get much when I pump even when I do it first thing in the morning with full boobs. It was the same with my first two babies. I've been getting maybe 2-3oz total from both sides.

My little girl is now 6 weeks and 4 days old. I pump 3 times a day, I average about 4 ounces each time I pump. I'm starting my stock pile for when I go back to work.


She hasn't gotten a bottle yet, thinking about having Daddy give her, her first bottle this weekend so she can practice for when I go back to work and has to have one at day care.

I'm too weeks out. I can pump 1.5 + ounces every session which is usually every 2-3 hours. He's eating 2 - 3 oz. every 2-3 hours. Hoping to catch up with him!
