Have you ever wondered why you pump 2 ounces and someone else can pump 6? Or why some people pump every 2 hours and others pump every 4? Today, Heather and Maureen tackle the big question of breast storage capacity and refill rates. Essentially, how much milk you can actually hold at one time and how fast you make it! This information can be essential for managing pumping and feeding expectations, schedules, and supply. Don’t miss it!
