Anywhere from 2-3 ounces every 2-3 hours. I would leave at least 1 ounce for every hour you will be away from him plus a bit extra. Also don't forget if you will be away from your baby for more than 3 hours you will need to make sure you pump every 3 hours or so to keep your supply going.
Enjoy your evening out!
