Due to DD only transfering a little over an oz, our Pedi & LC have been having me pump after each nursing session and feeding DD. I get a little over an oz each time I pump, sometimes more, sometimes less. Lately, DD has been refusing the bottle of BM. She is gaining weight and looks chunky. We have not been back to the LC due to them telling me they did not know what else to do for us and they had no idea why she was transfering so little (we have been to the LC office each week since DD was born 7 weeks ago).
I offer both breasts and sometimes she takes both, sometimes not.
Does me pumping a little over an oz after each feeding mean she is still not transfering enough? They told me she needed to transfer about 2.5oz at this point. We have not been back to the LC lately. I know DD has latch issues (shallow latch, upper lip tie, high palate) and we are working on these issues (doing CST and waiting to be seen by the ENT).
How do I know when I can stop pumping and supplementing?
When I do stop pumping after each session (I HOPE SOON!) will this affect my supply?
