I'm at 9 weeks and doing 6 most days but it's become 5 more and more recently. I've actually had an increase in supply but am dealing with a lot of clogs...boo. You're still so early if you drop down and find that your supply dips, you still have weeks to add pumps back in.

I started off at 5 pumps almost immediately. When I started work at 8w pp I dropped to 4 pumps. At work I wasnt able to always get 2 pumps in so some days it would only be 1 pump at work (for a total of 3 pumps a day). For the last 3 weeks I've been only 3 pumps a day (my son is now 7 1/2 months). I am STILL getting over 60 ounces a day (about 25 at 7 am, 20 during work between 2 and 3 pm and 20 at 8pm.

I am somehow pumping more now than when I was pumping 5 times a day.

I think that besides being a HVP I also have high capacity breasts because I never really get too engorged...
