no, I am sorry I am stuck in the 50 years in the past when it comes to measurements. I guess I am starting to get it though, my conversions were not to bad.
So please go over anything I say with your IBCLC. She is there and knows the situation. I don't. But here are my thoughts.
ok. I think you are doing really well! as pp notes, Baby is gaining wonderfully. So while I certainly agree block nursing was probably not a great idea, obviously any damage done was not to bad plus, is getting reversed. You can usually reverse low production of this type (the type brought on by breastfeeding management rather than some underlying condition that causes low production) by nursing lots and lots. Pumping as well, as you are doing gave you a jump start, but you may be able to back off on that now, which will make life far easier for you.
to respond specifically to each of your answers:
I would strongly suggest seeing if baby will nurse more often. 8-9 times a day is on the low end of normal for a baby this age. Just bumping this up two more times a day would almost surely make up for what you are supplementing.
Well you are using an excellent pump. Great. BUT I doubt you need to keep pumping that often. For sure, definitely pump if you are still supplementing. But once you stop supplementing, you can almost surely quickly wean off the pump sessions entirely.
