I've started to pump and so far have just been pumping once in the morning after I feed my daughter because I seem to have plenty of milk at that time of day...I'm wondering if I wanted to pump at another time and my daughter wanted to eat shortly after I pumped would I have enough milk to feed her? How long does it take for my supply to replenish itself? Or do I have a never-ending supply?? Also - my daughter is almost 4 weeks old...how much do you think she'd need from the bottle for a feeding? is 3-4 oz enough? That seems to be what I get when I pump...Answer Question

okay so if if you pump after your daughter eats you will not get as much. After a while you will. Breastfeeding works simply on supply and demand. The more you pump and or feed the more milk you will make. It should only take 3-4 days to build up your supply, 4 oz is enough. You will start making more when she wants more. Just be careful with all the pumping. Once you tell your body you need x amount of milk at x time its always gonna be there and you will be full so make sure you can commit that time to pump each day. Good luck
