I have been pumping for 5 1/2 months now. Since my second AF has started I am getting very little milk daily. About 3 oz total. So I say it and it makes two days to make 1 six oz bottle..Is this even worth my time or should I just stop?Answer Question

I'm not trying to be trivial but you should drink enough water to quench thirst only, when breast feeding. Too much water (by rule, drinking when you're not thirsty) can reduce your milk supply. Further information can be found at What to Expect, The First Year as well as this BFing website (or googling the topic). I just wanted to clarify before anyone misunderstood and started guzzling water every day.
I would say it is still worth it. I would let the baby nurse until he/she wasn't getting any more out of the breasts and then suppliment the rest with whatever foods he/she is eating and formula. I would highly suggest checking out the BFing group here on CM for advice!
