Hi everyone, i do need lots of advice of what to do nx..
DD had jaundice when she was a wk old. admitted to d hospital for 4 days.
Was still nursing alrite but take an hr or so to completely drain 1 breast.
Came home n pumped on 1 breast while she nurse on d other. (was able to get 2oz n gradually increased 3-4oz every 2-3hrs)
Feared that her jaundice might worsen n her nursing too long, My mom suggested that we shud supplement her EBM. Which i thot shud b ok. Big mistake.
Mom would just give her EBM when i'm asleep n also stuffed her with 3oz n 2oz within an hr. that affected my pumping rhythm.dragging to 4hrs then 5hrs.
Coming to wk 4, i noticed DD prefers btls n lazy to suck on my boobs. just always waiting for let down reflex n that drags our nursing sessions even longer. sometimes to about 2hrs with halfway thru falling asleep n poop.
DD checkup at 4wks, told d paed about my situation n suggest that i shud just let her latch on w/o pumping.Reason being, no stimulation, no milk. Which i did. She was always hanging on my boobies from day till nit non stop. But my supply is affected due to DD still take hrs to nurse on 1 boobie.
Now at 5wks, i no longer feel my boobs being full n pumping only get 1-2oz now.
Today, DD totally rejected my boobs. Cried every time i tried to latch her on. It went on for about 1/2 hr n i broke down too...Hubby rushed home to help out n finally gave her a btl.
I do wish i can continue to nurse till 1yr at least. Pls, i nd all d suggestions that can help me pull this thru.
