I'm going back to work on Monday. My son will be 7 weeks then. He is huge, about 13.5 pounds. I will be able to get home to breast feed, but have to work 9 hours. I am allowed to pump once at work besides for a max of 20 minutes. He feeds from my breast every 2-3 hours normally. I have no idea how much he drinks. I have been trying to pump every day this week. For some reason, it seems to take at least a few munutes for anything to happen, After barely getting anything pumping both breasts after feeding, I've fed him on one side and pumped the other. I still only get 2-3 ounces. That's even looking at my baby while he sits in his bouncer a few feet away. Even though my breasts will probably need relief during my at work pumping session, I'm afraid that I won't get any more than that per breast. Any suggestions.
