I will take any advice anyone has to offer. I breastfed 2 previous children for a total of 4 years, and never had a problem... But my newborn (now 7 weeks) started daycare this week as I had to go back to work. The problem is that I am not pumping nearly as much milk as he is drinking during the day.
I am using a medela pump in style, pumping both sides at once... I am pumping at 10, feeding him at 12, and pumping at 2 and 4. On Monday I did ok I got 4-5 oz at 10, and another 4-5 oz between the 2 afternoon sessions which matched what he ate at daycare, but yesterday and today despite following the same schedule I have only been able to pump 5 oz total for the day - and he has been taking 15 oz by bottle during the day in addition to my feeding him at 12.
At this point he has completely depleted the 'extra' milk I had stored up in preparation for returning to work and unless I can come up with 10 oz of breast milk between now and noon tomorrow he is going to wind up having to take formula tomorrow afternoon.
I saw that someone had posted a link to a video on the sticky topic ... But unfortunately I cannot view the video on my apple because it does not support flash.
If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate your help!
