November 6, 2009, Newsletter Issue #138: How Much Breastmilk

Tip of the Week

The amount of breastmilk that you are able to pump is not an indication of how much milk you actually produce. However, you can estimate how much breastmilk needs to be expressed to meet your baby's needs by dividing the amount of daily consumption by the number of feedings.

A baby that is given breastmilk exclusively consumes about 25 ounces each day. If your baby nurses eight times in 24 hours, you want to pump about three ounces of breastmilk available for each feeding.
