Mine is holding steady and I'm hoping it continues so I could pump until the 12 month mark..

Mine has gone down the crapper! For the past month I'm only pumping enough for one bottle for daycare, but she gets 2-3. My goal was 12months, and so far we've almost made it 8months, but doesn't look like we'll make the 12 month mark. So far I feel like I've done everything I can think of to help increase my supply, but I'm just not pumping alot out at all:[

My pump schedule is a wreck this week. I had to get Lo early from the sitter's Mon and Tuesday, so I only got one or two pump sessions in. (however, I did nurse her the missing sessions). And this weekend will be messed up as well...


Thanks SavaAngel for my wonderful signature!

I just posted about my woes this week... just not getting as much as I"d like, and then Michael doesn't seem satified when I nurse him in the evenings... I've only got 4 months under my belt, and would like to make it to at least 6 - so I'm now getting nervous!

I'm also nervous about the upcoming weekend. I do supplement too - and that kind of helps - but, I worry all the time that he's not getting enough breast milk, and is getting too much formula. He gets about 20 oz of bm on a week day, a little less during the weekends (if we are out and about it is easier that I ff him and pump when needed)...

I'll be out of town with Michael from Thursday until Tuesday - and I'm just terrified it will throw him off!

My supply is minimal these days - down to hand expressing only once before bed now . . . I thought it would die off when AF hit, but nope! still going! maybe when the next AF hits. I thought I'd be into my freezer bags by now! I'll keep hand expressing as long as I have milk left.
