I am trying to determine what volume pumper I am. I am 15 days pp and am so glad i found this board...breast feeding didn't work out and pumping is going really well for me.
I manage to pump every 4 hours (double with a PIS) and get about 10 - 11 ounces after 30 minutes. Is that good? Will it go up?
Also, did you ladies buy larger bottles to pump into rather than the 6 ounce ones that come with the Madella pump? Or do you stop when pumping to get a new one? My right breast is not totally empty when I totally fill up one of the bottles hooked up to the horn...so I just stop, and I see many posts about pumping until you are empty.
At any rate, I am just trying to see where I fit in the whole scheme of pumping to make sure I am on a good track to keep pumping. I manage to easily freeze 20 ounces or so a day on top of feed my 15 day old big boy. I hope that is good?
Any insight would be helpful. Thanks to you all...such a huge help when everyone around me seems to think that the failure to breast feed is such a tragedy, and I feel like this is a wonderful solution for us. You are all such a big help.
Thanks in advance.
