my breast became small and very soft

by maja mallari

my child is now 3 months old, i am breatfeeding her all the time. but since i go back to work last 3 weeks ago, i make sure that 1 hour before i leave home i have to feed and pump milk so that even while away she still feeds my milk. but i am so concern of my milk supply, i only pump 3 oz per pump and sometimes 4 oz.

i usually pumped 3 times a day, morning, afternoon and evening. do i need to worry about this? i mean is this really low supply? by the way my cup size is B.

i used to have full breast after 3-4 hrs but now even at longer time i couldn't feel its full but soft but good thing whenever my baby nurses me, milk comes out and seems she's happy with it.

hope to hear some comment on my post so i can relate some mums out there. God bless

It is not unusual for a mother's supply to regulate well after 6-8 weeks. It is usually a good thing, that your body has regulated to make only enough milk for what baby eats.

A baby usually eats about 1-1.5 oz for eery hour between feedings. This means that 3-4 oz every 3 hours is right on target and very much within normal range.

It seems your body and supply are right on track and unless there are other problems I wouldn't worry. :) you are doing great, mama!
