We have bought a pump because to assist with feeding. When I pump I am getting 1 oz from the left and 1 - 1.5 oz from the right.

It's normal to have one produce more than the other.

The total amount you're pumping about 3.5 oz, right?) is average production for a woman using a double pump. It would be more efficient to pump more often than to pump longer each time you do. Try pumping every two hours during the day and three/four hours at night for no more than fifteen minutes at a time.

I am only getting 1 oz per breast at each pumping. I have been trying to pump every 2 hours during the day.
