I don't pump unless I'm super engorged, then I pump two oz. I have six oz frozen and a daughter who won't drink from a bottle.

With OAL and oversupply it's no problem to pump--I just don't like to pump for the freezer because I have high lipase.  Even though DS will drink it, I prefer it to be "fresh" for him...

When I was pumping for my dd I was getting about 4oz from each side. This was right after she was born though.

My morning pump is between 4-6oz from one side. I pretty much never pump from both sides. The rest of the day i average about 2-3 oz from one side. But i don't pump that often because my nursling refuses the bottle. I was pumping for my cousin but i'm not sure she still needs me too.

I can get between 3-5ozs total per pumping. I only pump for 8 minutes tho, if I pumped until I was done spraying I'm sure it would be more. I'm away from DS2 for maybe 8 hours a day and he only takes 3ozs that whole time so the rest gets frozen and donated. I have already donated just over 300 ozs and have close to another 100 ready to go and I only started pumping the week before I went back to work (1/14/13 was my first day back), DS2 is now 18 weeks old.

I can pump anywhere between an ounce to six ounces. It depends on when I pump and how much the little one has been nursing.

Dd is 2, so I have no need or desire to pump lol. When she was a baby, the few time with my crappy pump, I usually got no more than an ounce. :)
