The old fahsioned way is not formula, its actually getting someone else to nurse your baby, but guess I don't need to go there
As far as pumping .5-2oz a session is normal...you are perfectly in that range and even if not it doesn't mean supply is low.
If your baby nurses on one side pump the other and switch next feeding...if baby does both sides pump 1/2 way between feedings like you have been doing.
Bottles only need to be 1 oz an hour for when you go away from her...so eatting every 2 hours then 2 oz, 3 hours then 3 oz per bottle...BM is not formula its amounts don't need to be increased because it gets better with your babies age.
BTW to the mom having twins...your body will make WAY more than enough in the beginning...enough for 10 kids sometimes...if you nurse both babies on demand no bottles you will make enough milk, theres NO need to pump unless you plan to work, ask moms of multiples in the BFing groups
