So I dont know if the reglan has really helped out or not? I dont know if Sam has really made a big difference in his size "other than a month passing" if you know what I mean.
( I was pumping about the same? but dont really know?? (also since I had been on the reglan for awhile I started taking the fenugreek and blessed thistle to help with pump out put. " " because the dr just wanted bottles when i was away from him at work to have more in them ?? they were 3 4oz bottles??
I just dont want the dr to tell me that I have to supplement. OR that he needs more. 3 5oz bottles is hard for me to do, I am lucky because I have every other day off pluz the weekends right now. And that may change come may. But right now this allows me to get the 15 oz, i get about 6-8 when at work then I pump whenever I can that night and the next day to get the rest pluz a few more oz to help with the next day. Im just trying to stay ahead of the game, Also never had a freezer stash I was badly informed and really trying to make this work
Today I broke his bottles up into 2.5 oz each. This way he still gets 5oz but I changed the nipples also so it would be harder, This way it would take him longer to eat the bottles. BUT my dh said he cried when he finished the first 2.5 and was upset till he got the next one. Which was only long enough for dh to transfer the bags outta the bottle
I really Hope that all is well. So I was wondering for all those other moms who do pump. What helps.
I didnt do this last night and some nights I do skip, But for the most part I awake like every hour. If i go to bed at nine and feed baby then at 10 imma awake trying to pump because at 11 he wakes up. I do this several nights a week actually and I try and pump after his feedings sometimes with what I have going on at home its not easy to take and run off after I have just nursed him. But I really try and I pump or try and pump a few times a day if he has taken a break and is sleeping. Usually though he goes every two hours so I try and pump an hour after he has eaten.
Its not easy at night to do this because alot of the time Iget tired and this morn i was very tired and tried and didnt get much. not even half and oz but i think that is because We fell asleep nursing so he stayed attached
IF I am at work. And he has eaten at 6/630 I try and pump for the first time at 9-930..I get about 2 oz..But in the two following pump sessions, at 1230 and 330 I get about 3 0z?? I so wish that Icould train my body to do more.
Do yall have any suggestions or is this the best that it is ever gunna get?
My son per the dr is drinking 5 oz bottles and right now he is doing 3 of those, Im gone from home about 9 0r so hours. I nurse him between 6-7 in yhe morn and then he gets the three bottles while im gone I get home at 5 530 the latest.
