Back at work

So I started back at work this week and it totally sucks Click here to enlarge I miss her so much. I've been pumping twice a day and got 22 oz one day and 17 the other. I'm gonna stick to the twice a day plan for as long as I can.

I thought it was going to be hard and miserable to pump at work but it's gone pretty smooth. I know 2 days isn't much to go off of but so far so good Click here to enlarge

OMG Click here to enlarge That is a LOT of milk to get in two pumping sessions. I'm glad I'm not still pumping or I would have to hate you a lot. Click here to enlarge That should probably be enough to keep her drinking mostly breastmilk while you are away from her.

Good job! Click here to enlarge

Wow, that is a lot! I can only get 2-3 ounces per side per session.

that is great, sour! Keep it up! Click here to enlarge

I actually didn't mind pumping at work too much. Everyone left me alone for awhile, which was nice. Just remember to lock the door. Click here to enlarge

I used to get that much in two pumping sessions too. My boobs liked the pump, I'd usually get 8-10 ounces in one 10 minute session.

My 11am session is where I get like 13oz and then it's tappered off at the 3pm session.

I considered pumping more times a day but think this is a good middle ground.

It makes my day go by faster by breaking it up Click here to enlarge

I think she ate 12oz today while I was at work?

Ds3 was eating 12-16 oz a day and I could only pump 4 oz a day while gone (plus 4 at night) which eventually led to our supplementing with formula.
