I go back to work in less than a week and I am getting a bit anxious. I teach and my school has a Child Development Center exclusively for employees so I will be able feed him myself sometimes. However, not all the time. I am trying to pump enough milk to have bottles ready for each day. However, I can't pump as much as he actually eats during each feeding. For example: when he nurses, he is satisfied for 4 hours. He should be getting about 6 ounces each time. However, I can only pump 3 ounces from my right side and 1 - 1 1/2 ounces from my left side each time. What shoudl I do? I would like to avoid supplementing if possible.
