Im in the army national guard and normally i just do one weekend a month for drill but i switched my AT (2 weeks) to doing a at home AT. Which means now i have 3 weeks of Monday thru Friday and one weekend in there as well because i have this months drill to attend as well. Normally i would just pump enough for the whole weekend and be fine. But i used up my milk from my last drill and now have about 15 oz stored and plan to pump for the next week to get enough for a full day, and do like working moms. Use the milk from the previous day but im concerned i won't pump as much as i need because it varied while i was at drill on how much i made while away. Sometimes i would come back with more then what i left with or not as much. My dd is 7 months now. Beings i don't do this on a regular basis is there any chance i won't make enough for the whole 3 week.
The routine would be me leaving around 7am and being back with my dd between 3 and 5pm. I should be able to pump every 2 to 3 hours but if it was necessary i would figure out a way to pump more frequently, if that would help. We have started solids and a small amount of water in a sippy cup, if that matters.
