    Low Milk Supply or Low Milk Output - Are You Sure It's Low?

    Is your milk supply really low?

    First of all, it's important to understand the difference between milk supply and milk output. Milk supply refers to the amount of milk in your breasts, whereas milk output is a measure of the amount of milk you are able to express either using manual expression (your hands) or using a breast pump. These are two very different things. Often times, mothers get worried when they are unable to pump more than 1 or 2 ounces during a pumping session. This leads them to believe that their milk supply is low, which is absolutely not true. Milk output can vary, especially when you're just starting out. On average, mothers who are nursing full-time are only able to pump about 1/2 to 2 ounces total from both breasts in one pumping session. Anything more than 2 ounces is considered to be an oversupply of milk. After a time and plenty of practice, some mothers are able to pump between 4 - 8 ounces during a pumping session, however, keep in mind that some women respond better than average to breast pumps, and 4 ounces is an unusually large amount of milk output. Having to pump several times during the day just to get one feeding ready does not mean you have a low milk supply, it means you are normal. The most efficient way to express breast milk is by nursing. The amount of milk expressed with a breast pump just can't compare to what a nursing baby can express, therefore you cannot measure the amount of milk your baby is getting by how much milk output you have.
