What Is Normal Pumping Session for Breastfeeding Mothers?

When moms are distanced from their babies or pump solely, they are able to pump more milk every session. Pumped milk is “extra” milk that is above and beyond what your baby requires when breastfeeding full-time. Don’t be disheartened if you’re attempting to build up a freezer stash while breastfeeding full-time and aren’t getting much milk every pumping session – this is completely normal.

First, evaluate the likelihood that when you and your infant are apart, your kid is being overfed by the bottle. If this is the case, you may not need to release as much milk as the request specifies. This isn’t always the case, but it happens very frequently. A full-time breastfeeding woman should be able to pump between half and two ounces total (for both breasts) per pumping session. Mothers who pump more milk every session may have an excess of milk, have a better response to the pump than the norm, or have been able to increase pump production with practice. Many mothers believe they should be able to pump four to eight ounces per session, but even four ounces is a significant amount of milk for a full-time breastfeeding mother.
