Alasdair's starting to develop routines, I think - he has a couple really huge meals and a bunch of smaller ones. His meals range between 1 and 6 ounces. He tends to eat more from the bottle than the breast, I think. Anyway I end up pumping what's left after he nurses all day and then he'll eat everything I pumped right before bed. He's also been sleeping much better.

The key for me in pumping is to use breast massage/squeezing to maximize what I get out - the pump is less efficient than a baby for emptying the breast, so it helps keep supply up to assist the pump and empty the breast as much as possible. There have been times when I have pumped 8 oz in a sitting.
