My baby is 2 months old and takes 4 oz at a time of breastmilk. I work so I pump every 3 hours while at work.My problem is that I'm barely able to pump the 4 oz she is taking at one time. I have tried all of the herbal remedies and also have tried reglan. These have helped some but after a few days I seem to be "immune" to them. I have been trying to pump more frequently (every 2 hours) like the lactation consultant said but when I do I just pump less at each session. When I combine the amount that I'm pumping it equals the same amount as it would have been if I were to just wait the 3 hours. It seems as if I make all of the milk I will have for the entire day each morning. If I empty my breasts in the morning after she has fed then it seems like I produce less. Does this make sense to anyone? It just seems that the more I pump the less I make. Any help would be appreciated.
