Be a super pumper. Aiden is almost twenty months. We did a test run and let him sleep in Grandma's room and us in the guest room. I just woke up and was "full" but not engorged so I pumped with a single manual pump and got four ounces. I haven't pumped since he was a year old. Yep, that's my super power :)

    I'm jealous! The most I've ever gotten was 3 ounces with the norm being 2.

    I wish there was a need for toddler milk. My kiddo probably won't drink this when he gets up.

    If I pump after nursing I get two or three ounces. If I pump in between I get four or five. If I pump first thing in the morning I get six or more. But my baby is almost three months.

    I EPed until he was two months old and could get 10 ounces or more some times. Everyone keeps telling me that eventually I won't respond to the pump anymore... so I wasn't expecting four ounces at all.

    Its strange to me. With my eight year old I could get a lot. None with my five year old and a lot with my three month old.

    I guess pump response is different with each baby just like every nursing relationship is different with each child.

    So jealous.  I produce milk great but it would take me 40 mins to pump that!  So I can't pump since my dd still feeds every 2 hours or I'd never get anything done.

    will you donate or does your child take it from a bottle.

    He's twenty months old and toddlers milk is different than an infants so I could only donate to another toddler. There's not much of a demand for that. He actually did drink all of it from his sippy cup with breakfast. I didn't think he would.

    Wow I think I can get about almost 2.5 oz from both sides together. But I only pump about 5 mins because my pump hurts me

    Awesome!

    When my oldest dd was born I had to pump for her bc she was a preemie in the nicu. They had to order bigger bottles for me bc I got so much milk. The lc told me I could've fed the entire nicu for a day with 2 pump sessions. Lol they called me the milk goddess
