    Re: Losing milk supply

    Re: Losing milk supply

    No, it was more or less mentioned as an afterthought, so is there anything which can be done?

    Re: Losing milk supply

    I think the problem with the pump is probably a combination of flange and suction. On the double pump the suction is a dial ( which you have to operate without access to your hands) and there's a...

    Re: Losing milk supply

    Not good.

    I've tried as much as I can, and whilst I can now get him to latch (kind of), but I don't think that he's drinking much.

    For example, this morning. He nursed for an hour and was still...

    Re: Losing milk supply

    There have been relatively few days (although I admit yesterday was one) where I've not tried something to get him to latch directly. Be that nipple shields, half a bottle feed then trying to get him...

    Re: Losing milk supply

    Sorry I've not replied. Since using the double pump ive lost my Internet time as I don't have a free hand. I'm on the single pump at the moment - I tend to do one single pump each day.

    I might...

    Re: Losing milk supply

    No, no suctioning at all.

    And I've tried 'magic finger' - in fact, in the early days i didn't want to introduce a bottle and I was syringing down the side of my finger, but I had to stop as the...

    Re: Losing milk supply

    No, doesn't fit at all. We don't get that far at all. He simply refuses to latch. On the very rare occasion he latches, he seems to nurse quite well.

    Re: Losing milk supply

    I messed up the conversion into oz. I work in ml.

    He's taking up to 34 a day. And I'm producing about 28 or 29.

    I believe 2 of the people were ilcbc qualified. No, neither offered any...

    The other thing about the double pump is that if it reduces my pumping time per expression. I might be able to fit more into the day...

    Re: Losing milk supply

    I have a Medela swing (single) but I have, today, hired a hospital grade double pump. I'm boiling up the bits at the moment to sterilise them.

    I don't really want to express/feed. But I really...

    Re: Losing milk supply

    I've tried about 8 times to give him a half-feed and get him to latch. It worked once.

    There are also 2 occasions he's taken a whole feed directly from me. (Including moving from one side to the...

    Re: Losing milk supply

    I can only do that many expressions because that's as many as I can fit in once I have bottlefed him and settled him down. Without leaving him to scream I don't have the time to fit more in. I know...

    Losing milk supply

    I have a 4 week old. From day 1 he's struggled with breastfeeding. He seems to be scared of the idea of feeding properly.

    I've spoken to some breastfeeding councellors and they advised to stop...
