putting in my two cents.
I was sick a week ago. Fever, chills, no apitite, hard time even drinking. At 1230 pm, I went to pump after a nap, because DS was being watched so I could sleep. I got NOTHING. And it had been about 3 hours since DS last feeding. I forced myself to drink a bottle of water and eat a big bow of instant (My real oats were in my desk at work because that is where I normally eat them). Within an hour, I got two ounces. Coincidence? maybe. But I eat a bowl of real oats mixed with instant every morning, and get about 14-17 ounces pumped within an 8 hour period.
