No way! My milk came in about 2 days pp, I pumped a tiny bit at like 4 - 5 days pp, but just to relieve the major engorgement that was going on. I didn't start pumping consistently until about 6 weeks, in preparation for going back to work.
I did, but I had a c-section so the way it was explained to me is that my body was 'ready' to be producing milk so I needed to make it. I started pumping as soon as I was in my own room. By the time I was released I was getting a oz out of each side. Hospital grade machines are the shit.
My milk came in 2 days pp and it was about 2 oz each side which went up to about 5 oz each side whenever I pumped.

This is my problem. I feel like my supply is on the low side and has been always. But I never pumped right away either.. My milk is usually in around 4-5 days pp
