I'm just curious...I just started pumping tonight so that way if there's ever some kind of an emergency, my hubby would be able to feed my son his *exptremely occasional bottle/sippy cup at night, of breast milk just in case I'm sick or indisposed (Getting some crazy dental work done really soon) And I want to make sure my kiddo has some on hand if/when they'd need it, you know? Now, I used to have no issues pumping at all, but now since it's been a while, I've only been getting about 3.5 oz each time. I'm sure this is normal to now since he's only nurinsg 4-5 times a day, sometimes a bit more. I guess it still worries me. he used to get 8 oz a day no problem, but I suppose now too it has to do with all the solid foods that he eats and stuff.
What does anyone else get now that's still pumping for their LO? Thanks everyone! (I do also know that pumping isn't a good gauge as to what your body actually makes milkwise.) :) I'm just kind of curious to see what everyone else gets pumping now.
Seriously; Pumping is like an art form lol. Trying to get back into the swing of things again!
