Since LO was born she never liked nursing from my right breast. She had a bad time latching on but excelled at nursing from my left. This breast became my super producer while the other my dud. I kept pumping my right, storing the milk in the freezer until life got in the way and I eventually stopped pumping it.
Fast forward, yesterday was LO's 4 mo check up. She has gained a total of 4lbs from birth, which puts her at 11lb2oz. She is only in the 5th%tile and actually went from 20%down to the 5%. The pedi was too concerned but she told me I should start introducing solids. I don't want to do that. I want to breastfed until 6 months, then introduce a small amount of solids and EBF until1 year.
So, can I keep it up with only 1 breast producing milk? I keep trying to pump the other side and get dripdrops out of it. I am thinking about buying a new pump? How can I get the supply to go up on that side? I also tried to introduce it to LO again and her latch on there is even worse. What can I do? I DON'T want to supplement, at all. I would hate that.
LO is happy, alert, and growing in all ways. I am not really concerned now but am afraid that when she is 6 months or older one breast just won't cut it!
