over produce BM Mommyto5 boys 5 kids; Arizona 256 posts

I can't wait until DS eat larger amounts of BM....I've always been an over producer and since my milk has come in OMG!!! When he nurses he emptys about a half of one breast and i have to hand express the other....yesterday i got almost 3 ounces at one time from one breast and i didn't even empty it....just had to relieve most of the pressure....i defiantly know DS is getting enough with having a poopy diaper at almost every feeding...at least i know he won't run out!!

It will level off. This is a perfect opportunity to pump and store though.

I don't have a pump yet, were getting one on Wednesday, but I'm defiantly expressing what i can and storing.....for the most part he eats every 3 hours...but sometimes he cluster feeds so i don't want to completely empty....

I feel you. I'm a little over 4 weeks PP and when I pump I get 10 oz all together and have to stop (each pump container only holds 5 oz each) so it doesn't even finish. But it gives me alot to stock up on in the freezer for those just in case moments.
