Pumping Amount Decrease

KH - October 6

I used to pump about 3-4 oz off each br___t and the last 3 days, I've been getting about 1.5. What is up with this? My baby is 12 weeks old and I give him a bottle at night to get a break (he feeds constantly in the evenings). Then, he also sleeps better at night. I need advice b/c I'm going to start working a few nights a week and don't want to give formula :(

it could just be that baby is growing and is now more efficent at sucking. (leaving less milk for pumping.) you can try pumping for about 5-10 minutes after each feeding to up your supply.
