The Boob Juice Supply




In case you’re curious, this is how much boob juice I make per day… approximately 10 bottles, each bottle having 6 ounces. She drinks approximately 6 bottles per day, and nurses twice. It’s neat knowing how much she drinks with the bottle.

I can store up to two bottles per day in our freezer. While I was sick, I was making less milk (or rather, just enough for her each day, and no extra). So now I’m getting back to the regular groove of being able to save about 10 to 12 ounces in the freezer per day, outside of what she already drinks. She’s drinking more and more each day, too, so I’m keeping up the supply. At this rate, I’m hoping that I can quit nursing/pumping altogether at around 8 to 9 months, and just start using our freezer supply up until a year. She’ll start solids at 6 months.

Wow. You are a pumping machine. I hate to pump. I only do it every once in a while and then I only get at max 4 oz. I have been trying to pump more after he eats because I am adding breast milk to the solids. Wow that is a lot of breast milk!

I absolutely haaatte to pump. The pump makes this awful noise, and it’s so annoying. But, I try to do it three times a day to keep the production going, since she’s now preferring more of the bottle (which makes sense because I’m working more, so she takes more of the bottle).
