Wow, you do rock! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br>
I'm about to start the joys of pumping again in 2 weeks, but with ds1 I never got more than 2 bottles per session. Luckily (not!) he barely drank from a bottle <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

You'll have a freezer full of milk in no time if you keep this up! I max out at 9 or 10 ounces in a session (and I need 16 in a day) so I would be doing backflips if I got what you just did with the pump!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

man, who knew pumping could give you such a rush <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> ds2 is 5 months and has been going through about 5 3.5 to 4 oz bottles per day. but i usually get very little on my second pump (well, it could range from 6 to 9 oz) so i kind of count on the early one to get the majority of my milk. i have actually pumped a lot more with ds2 then ds1--i think it just has to do with how well ds2 has brought his milk in though--i truly don't think i have improved at this whole thing.... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
ds2 just started actually using more of the milk that i pump--i usually have 1 or 2 bottles left over every day... so yeah, i have a REALLY good freezer stash. i have been very grateful to get a good stash both of my pumping times... means i have not had to resort to formula. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> ds1 did start having to dip into the freezer stage in his 5th month though... so if that happens with ds2, gonna have to introduce solids....
