    Re: Who's used a SNS?

    I have very little milk... like maybe a teaspoon for him to have.
    I'm mostly concerned with how to know that he's increasing my supply... I don't have a scale to weigh him and doubt it would really...

    Re: 4 Months and trying again

    Funny enough, I can express twice as much milk by hand than by pump... and it's quicker too. I only get drips still... and can only fill the bottom rim of the bottle with both breasts, but I can't do...

    Re: 4 Months and trying again

    Yeah, I searched. No luck. They're all just shrugging their shoulders about why they don't have enough pumps to go around.

    Re: 4 Months and trying again

    Ofcourse the double pump could build my supply better until I can try Will on my breast after he eats from the bottle a bit... ah my head is spinning. :shrug

    Re: 4 Months and trying again

    My local pharmacy says $65/month for a double pump. Another sixty-something for the personal kit. Holy crap.

    I was told I'd get a call back about the price and wait on an sns. I'm expecting...

    Re: 4 Months and trying again

    I have to add that it's so encouraging here. I can't tell you enough how much I need the encouragement and other people in my life, namely my MIL aren't so positive.

    Thank you all for your help...

    Re: 4 Months and trying again

    I'm not sure I can afford to rent a double pump. I'll have to look into it.
