  • [SIZE=2]I fed Avery (8wks old) and pumped an hour after she finished and got out 55cc.... is that a good amount or normal amount for trying to get a stockpile going?[/SIZE]

  • How often are you feeding her? I'd say split the difference--so if she's eating every 4 hours, pump two hours after she eats.

    55 cc is equal to 1.86 oz and that's fair. But if you continue this for about 10 days, you should be able to increase production to a point that you'll be getting 4 oz or more each time. This is the advice of my favorite LC.

  • Its good for now but it should increase more as you start pumping more.
