I exclusively pumped from the get go with my son because of latching issues and was pumping 2-4 ounces on day three at the hospital. Apparantly that's not the norm?

At morning pumpings once I was fully established about 4 weeks in I was pumping almost 14-16 ounces just in my morning pumping session, I had to always change the bottles out. Now I'm paranoid that it won't be the same this time around if I can't breastfeed again.

There is always time to run out and get the stuff afterwards if need be. You will not need any of the supplies aside from maybe some breast pads (which are cheap anyway) before you start to pump. Does your hospital send you home with any formula? Even breastfed babies at my hospital are sent home with a carepackage of about 8 2 ounce bottles of ready feed formula.
