11 months

I have been pumping basically since my LO was born. Now I'm only able to pump 5 ounces while at work. I used to get about 10. Is this common since he is getting older and how can I keep up?!

I was not able to sustain my supply while I worked. The pump was just not efficient enough for me. Could be that your body is not responding to the pump. Have you tried fenugreek?

How often do you pump? It helped me I think to be on prenatals.
