Why are you pumping? How often? Are you also nursing? How much from the right? Are you doing massage, compressions, and hand expression after pumping?

Im just pumping to keep my left breast from drying up. My daughter won't nurse from it anymore & im donating what i do pump monthly to anyone who wants it locally.

Maybe but i also do not respond well to this pump. The most ive ever gotten was 2 oz from each breast.

Maybe once she sees the eye dr and neurologist for her head tilt, she will take it again.

2 moms liked this
2 oz from both breasts combined is the high end of normal. 4 oz combined is extraordinary.

Also, if you arent use to pumping than I think your response will gradually increase, is tha correct?

Seems like its not. Lol. I pump 5 oz a day. 2 oz in the morning and an oz after that. im sure who ever i donate to will appreciate my donation, even if its only a weeks worth, once a month.
