I am 5 weeks postpartum and I had a cesarean delivery, so I'm unable to hold baby to breastfeed. I am exclusively pumping 8-9 times a day every 2-3 hours in the day and every 4 hours at night, each pump session being 20-30 minutes long. In the first 10 minutes of each pump session, I get 25 ml at right breast and 30 ml at left. Sometimes only 55 from both. But my son drinks 110 ml at each feeding. If I keep a 3 hour gap, I get 80/85 from both. How can i increase my milk supply? Is there anything wrong with my pump timings or length of pump sessions?
