Ok the pumping every 2/3 hours I don't mind .. I just wondered if a decent supply can be got with just pumping. I pump every 2 or 3 hours a day, which yes does feel like a chore at times .. but I think of the benifits it is for her, even tho she does get formula as well .. I'm glad i'm able to pump for her .. even if it is a small amount that amounts to maybe one feed a day ../ its something right ?
That's not really something that a definite answer can be given for, since it is different for everyone. Some women have a very hard time pumping anything, while they can produce plenty for their baby while it is nursing directly. Some people can exclusively pump for 6 months and then start to dry up, some for a year, and some have gone on even longer! It does take lots of dedication, you really need to pump very frequently, especially the first few months.
I have a decent supply though it has dropped the last few weeks (working a lot, sick, hormonal IUD placed). But I have a little over a months supply saved in my freezer. It is a ton of work tough, and I pumped around 8x in 24 hours in the beginning, now around 6.
