How many times a day are you pumping and roughly how much do you get per pump? Just curious to see how much people are able to get and if your supply has increased as you've gone on smile

I exclusively pumped for DS until he was 6 weeks. I pumped every time he fed (day and night) to keeps supply up. I can't remember how much I used to get, but after the first week I didn't supplement with formula so was pumping as much as he was eating.

Some women struggle with pumping though and can only get a few drops.

DS is mostly on bm now, but we still have to supplement with a couple of bottles a day. Hopefully in a few weeks he'll be on just bm. I'm not pumping throughout the night as I need any sleep I can get atm! I pump just before I go to bed and as soon as I wake up, and get about double in the morning what I normally get.

I'm pumping 4/5 times a day, sometimes 6, and this week I'm averaging at about 630ml/22oz a day, week 4.
