I posted this on working moms thread, too, but it probably fits here, too. Just looking for support/ideas on pumping and storing breastmilk. Right now I'm only working 1 day per week. It takes me all week to get enough milk stored up for that one day. Now that ds is 4 mo. old last week he had to have a little formula because he drank all the milk I had stored before I could get home--and I only worked a 1/2 day last week! I pretty much have only a half hour to pump while at work if I work a full day, so I only get about 3-4 oz ahead on that day. I'm preparing for work on Wed. and have only 3 oz pumped because we were out of town this weekend. I'm really sad about having to supplement. My sister said she always had trouble getting enough milk stored for her little ones when she went back to work. Just wondering if others have had the same problems and if you had any suggestions to increase my pumping abilities! I have an electric "Pump in style". Medela. It's about 9 yrs old.
