Hi everyone, While I was off for two weeks during X-mas, I just breastfed my son and never used my pump. Now that I'm back at work, my supply seems to have diminished quite a bit. I'm only able to pump about 4.5 ounces while I'm away from him for about 9.5 hours. I know b/f works on supply and demand, so can it be possible that he really only needs that much now? Before I went on my break I was sending 3 3 ounce bottles a day to daycare, so 9 ounces total.
Anyone else pumping and sending your baby to daycare? How much does your baby eat while you're gone these days? My son was born 2/25/08.
