I pumped a 5oz bottle out of 1 breast in about 7 mins. And I could have pumped more, but my bottle only holds 5oz. Yes, my new life goal has been achieved. I took a picture but decided not to post it... I realize not everyone gets as excited about this stuff as me.
Actually, I think I have a bit of an over supply issue. The poor kid chokes a lot cause I flood him. And I often spray breast milk all over him and drench us both. There are milk dribbles all over my couch.
I know oversupply isn't necessarily a bad problem to have but I do feel bad when the poor kid is choking on it. So I'm trying to make a concerted effort to pump off more during the day so that my breasts aren't as full.
And on the bright side, I feel like I have enough frozen milk to get him through the first day or two of day care while I'm still figuring out pumping at work. Heck, I could even get out of the house and leave him with DH for awhile and maybe get my hair cut or buy pants that fit or something else I've been neglecting.
Anyhow, after all the problems I had breastfeeding the first couple of weeks, I never would have guess it would be going this well now. I have a lot of anxiety about going back to work, but at least this shouldn't be a problem for us.
