My little girl is 10 weeks old and I am starting back to work in a week and a half. I currently pump 6 times a day for about 10 minutes and get about 40ish oz. I started doing just 6 pumps within the last week, but I have always done between 6 and 8 and was never consistant. I'm just trying to get ready since I will not be able to pump as much at work. Also all of the LC i worked with in the hospital where not very confident in my ablity to just pump, telling me I'd dry up, instead of giving me much advice (like i choose to have it this way!?!?!) SOO looking on this form it seems maybe I wasn't pumping long enough and might dry up because I only pump 10 mins? Should i pump longer if I'm going to cut down the number of times I pump? How does one go about cutting down? How long before you know if your supply will drop? HELP!!!
