As the title suggests, I'm curious to know how much milk is an 'average' amount to express?
I usually get around 150ml and am not sure whether this is a decent amount or not.

How much milk can you express?

I usually get around 120-150mls combine from both boobs! I easily get this in the morning but it's a struggle to even get 60-80mls in the arvo.

If I expressed that much I would be stoked! I never got much so I always had to 'add' my expressed milk together - I rarely missed bf my babies though, so my expressed milk was what I could get after feeding. When I missed expressed thru a fees though I'd still get max 60-70 mL. I always considered myself a 'barely able to provide' mum though - although I did bf solely both kids til 1 and my dd to 19 months.

I was always lucky to get 100ml combined from both sides - this was a full feed to. If expressing after a feed, then lucky to get 30ml.

About 200mLs from both boobs. Sometimes 240. However I am a human cow. Lol.

I get 120 - 150ml if I've missed a feed. Only 80 ml or so if I'm trying to express between feeds. Wish I was a human cow so I'd actually have spare milk.

About 100ml from one, really depends though. Don't often empty the breast fully, just express about 50ml to give me some relief.

I used to express in the morning and get average between 100-150 mainly of the right side as I'd feed dd on the left. The most I got was 210.
