Ok, I am trying not to panic. I know its only the first day. My baby is 4 months old and I just started back to school today. I dropped him at 9am and returned around 6pm. I managed to pump 3 times and got about 12oz. My mom, who is watching him, said he took close to 20oz!! What am I going to do?? I can't up my production by that much, I think. I pumped 2.5 more ounces after I got home, but that was pushing it (took about 25 minutes and lots of compression and massage).
I double pump with a Medela Pump in Style Advanced. I will eat oatmeal in the morning, but does anyone have any tips I can give my mom to help him eat less? We're using Born Free bottles. He also didn't nap much AT ALL. I had him up to about 5 hours of napping between 9am and 6pm, but today he didn't even do 2 hours.
Do they both just need time to adjust to the new routine? And me too, I guess, since I had been Exclusively BFing... maybe my body doesn't like the pump so much.
