  1. Re: New momma having major supply issues

    I go in to see my OB on Monday for my six-week postpartum appointment, so we may talk about possible medical issues. I'm pretty sure it's not a retained placenta fragment--I only partially delivered...
  2. Re: New momma having major supply issues

    We still haven't been able to hold him since last weekend because of when we can get up there. I had yesterday off and had planned to go up to the NICU, but there were so many things I had to do...
  3. Re: New momma having major supply issues

    Meg, there seems to be no difference in how much I produce between the three pumps I use. I'm really starting to think that what I was told was what that one nurse believed, not necessarily what the...
  4. Re: New momma having major supply issues

    My son is at Texas Children's, and the nurse who gave us the information stated that when babies do kangaroo care, they relax enough to go into a deep enough sleep to reach REM, which is when their...
  5. Re: New momma having major supply issues

    He's better, though still on a ventilator. Skin to skin is definitely encouraged by the staff so long as he is able to tolerate it, and he does well with it. We can't always do it as on the weekdays...
  6. Re: New momma having major supply issues

    I am allowed to hold him now, but I cannot nurse him as he is on a ventilator and has both breathing and feeding tubes going down his throat. I was unable to hold him for the first two weeks as he...
  7. Re: New momma having major supply issues

    lllmeg, it was my choice to go back as soon as I could in order to save some of my time so that I can be with him when he's released. I get standard FMLA, but to get paid, they take it out of my...
  8. Re: New momma having major supply issues

    An LC is supposed to swing by today. They only have one working at this time.

    I can see if the principal would allow it, but he's a stickler for rules. He may say that I can eat a snack, but under...
  9. Re: New momma having major supply issues

    If there are, we haven't been told. When I called the hospital's milk bank a few weeks back and asked when the LCs left, she did not make any mention of any RNs who are also LCs. One of our nurses...
  10. Re: New momma having major supply issues

    Well, the NICU that my son is in is over an hour away one way, so getting up there every day when I couldn't drive, my husband was working, and I had to make lesson plans, grade papers, and enter...
  11. Re: New momma having major supply issues

    Since I'm up in the NICU for most of the day, I've asked to have an LC come by, so hopefully she will before I leave today.
  12. Re: New momma having major supply issues

    Thank you for responding!

    When I pump, I just feel the suction. It starts off like a tug, but then I don't really notice it. I have tried three different flanges (24, 27, and 30) because I was...
  13. New momma having major supply issues

    Hello everyone. This is my first time here, but not my first time trying to find some answers. Five weeks ago I gave birth to my son, who was 26 weeks and 4 days gestationally. He was born at 8:10...
