    Re: Increasing production at 4 months

    I understand that in general nursing and pumping more will increase supply; however, I nursed on demand and pumped with a hospital pump after every feeding and saw no increase. So you can understand...

    Increasing production at 4 months

    Has anyone ever not been able to ncrease production until the baby was older?

    Long story short, an almost total blood loss post partum left me with a reduced milk supply. I make about 1.5 oz per...
  3. Re: Breastfeeding in Public: Why is it still so taboo??

    I have to agree with the bottle feeders- I am way more embarrassed giving my baby a bottle in public (I don't have a full supply so we supplement). And I know that's all in my head. Maybe hanging...

    Re: Long Term Supplementing

    No, she gets a Bottle after every feeding because she is still hungry. I've had production issues from the beginning because of extreme blood loss. Luckily, she jst doesn't like the way I've been...

    Re: Long Term Supplementing

    I nurse as much as I can. The times I pump are twice during the day, usually once during her nap and pnce in the late afternoon when my husband gets home, and three times while she sleeps (she...

    Re: Long Term Supplementing

    Well, turned out its more of a side preference. If she starts on the right she's fine; if she starts on the left she's fussy. Weird

    I did the tube for the first three weeks and can't do it...

    Re: Long Term Supplementing

    Thelast three days she has been very fussy and impatient every time I try to get her to latch on. She just doesn't seem to want to breastfeed, probably because of the low supply. She has been extra...

    Re: Long Term Supplementing

    Ok, well after the heartache of the last few days of her rejecting/constantly getting frustrated at the breast I have decided I am done breastfeeding. This has been emotional hell; all I wanted to...

    Re: Long Term Supplementing

    I don't know her weight history. She was supplemented from day one because I spent several days in ICU, so her weight has never been an issue. She was born at 6 lb 6 oz and was 9 lb 7 oz at 9...

    Re: Long Term Supplementing

    She was evaluated for transfer issues and that doesn't seem to be the problem. I try to pump about an hour after the start of our feed and usually get 1/2-2/3 and ounce. I was doing this to...

    Re: Long Term Supplementing

    Well, there are times she has transferred one ounce and is almost always hungry after breast feeding. Two ounces is my personal best which has only happened a handful of times. When I pump in the...

    Re: Long Term Supplementing

    I've just started the pattern of nurse-bottle-nurse and it seems to be going well. If she's startving I'll give her the bottle first (like during nighttime cluster feeding), but at least at night...

    Long Term Supplementing

    Has anyone here supplemented with formula for the long term? Despite doing everything I seems I'm not producing more than 50% of the breastmilk my 10 week old needs. I have this terrible fear that...
  14. Re: no milk even after trying everything

    I can completely relate to you. I too feel robbed of the birth and mothering experience I wanted and there's no way around it. I've been struggling with low supply for the past 8 weeks and just...
  15. Re: Advice and suggestions please for in

    Thanks, I'm just so sad about it right now. Its not the c-section that I think did this, its the almost total blood loss that followed. According to everyone that is the biggest factor in the...
  16. Re: Advice and suggestions please for in

    Yes, she had her frenulum clipped. Her latch and suck seem to be good from everyone who has seen her. I've actually felt really positive these last days because I really felt like things were...
  17. Re: Advice and suggestions please for in

    I'm so discouraged. We did a pre and post feed weigh today and found out she got 20 ml. I know its only been a few days of the increased pumping, but I have seen so many physical changes that I...
  18. Re: Advice and suggestions please for in

    So, based on everything I am going to pump after feeding for 10 min, pump in between feedings for 20 min, get one power pumping session in per night (probably when she goes down around midnight), and...
  19. Re: Advice and suggestions please for in

    I'm trying to cut down to no more than 2 oz of formula per supplement. I never offer the bottle unless she's hungry. I just couldn't not give it to her and let her cry out her hunger.

    I had a...
  20. Re: Advice and suggestions please for in

    Thanks! I'm going to definitely get to at least seven feedings per day by next week and double the number of times I pump. I'll also get more water in and cosleep/breastfeed in the afternoons.

  21. Re: Advice and suggestions please for in

    Thanks for all the advice! Its hard to get her up to nurse again because she stays up for so long. So, to feed every three hours means I would be waking her up right now from our 8AM feeding and...
  22. Re: Advice and suggestions please for in

    Thanks for the suggestions. To answer your questions:

    - yes, I'm using a rented hospital pump
    - after pumping I can't hand express anything
    - I know 5 times a day isn't a lot. I let the baby...
  23. Advice and suggestions please for incre!

    Hello,

    I am currently trying to build a full milk supply for my four week old. Some background- we planned a homebirth, but circumstances did not cooperate and we ended up with a c-section...
