I agree! Welcome to CafeMom btw and Congratulations!
Quoting MrsErdos2011: Normal pump output is .5 oz - 2 oz both sides combined, no matter the age of the child. Your milk changes to accommodate baby as needed so there is no need to increase the amount of milk baby gets as s/he gets older.
For more info, check out the breastfeeding moms group. There are quite a few moms that exclusively pump.
I never could get anything when I pumped, so I can't tell you what's normal and what isn't. Have you checked out the Breastfeeding Moms group to see what others say?
That is a great amount
Can I ask why you are pumping? Just curious if there might be an issue that we could help you with.
a PP said .5-2 oz is the normal output. You are still regulating your
supply, so chances are you will see the output slowly decrease. Be sure
you are pumping every two hours during the day and every 3 hours
overnight. Otherwise your supply will drop or cease to exist.
