Going back to work soon and had the same concerns...as long as your baby is producing 8-12 diapers daily including BMs he should be good. When I first started pumping I was only getting 2oz but I started drinking more water and made sure I have a complete diet and pump more.

From what I've gathered babys are more effective at getting milk out then a pump.. So he is most likely getting more then that. Also if he seems fine he most likely getting enough, just make sure you are getting at least 6 diapers. Good luck!
