I was instructed to pump to start saving milk for when I return to work. And I'm nursing first pumping second. It's been 5 days and I'm barely getting anything. In last 2 days (5 pumping sessions) I've barely gotten 1 1/2 oz total. I'm eating oatmeal and taking fenugreek. Do I need to try pumping before he eats? (This morning I pumped right side 2 hours after he nursed that side an didn't even get enough to cover bottom of bottle) I thought it was the pump wic gave, its the single user madela, but I tried the other electric pump I had used (a few weeks ago used it an was getting 1-2 oz each side) and my manual and I'm not getting any better results. I'm just lost and confused! Oh a.d I drink !tleast 12 glasses of water a day not including juice and milk that I drink.
