He wants more!

I started back to work Monday, and my husband is keeping our 8 week old. I felt very accomplished making it through my first full day of pumping and feel like it will be tough but I can do it!
But Ben is seeming to want to drink more than it seems he should, more like 4 oz every three hours and I'm hoping that doesn't increase too much because I worry I won't keep up. Here's my schedule so far... thoughts on how to make sure he's getting the right amount and I'm pumping enough/right timing to keep up with him will be appreciated!
It goes something like this...
8am pump in car on way to work (got about 4-5 oz each time)
11am pump in office (about 5-6 oz)
2pm pump in office (about 4-5 oz)
5pm pump in office
5:30 head home (45 min drive)
I'd love to ideally only do two sessions at work plus during the drive each way so I'd like to space them out a bit more and pump about 11:30 and 3:00 and those be the only office times, but I'm nervous that if I pump on the way home I won't be able to satisfy him when I nurse shortly after getting home.
