My LO is 5 weeks old.
he is breatfeeding only.
he used to take one breast at each feed, but one day he was feeding every hour the whole afternoon, i tried to offer him both, he took it and now he feeds like that every 3 hours.
I have no worries with supply. His dr said today he is even getting to much, he showed me a graphic, when he was born he was comparable to the line bellow average (the little ones) and now he has passed to the line above the average (the big ones). But he is gassy, maybe nursing more for comfort. Nothing to worry he says
he is going to have surgery and i guess he will skip some feedings. Shall i pump at the times he usually eats? and for how long?
this milk will probably be wasted, we will be away from home for two weeks, i guess i will keep in the fridge there just in case, but i wont be able to bring it back home.
than when we come back home, i want to build a very small supply for emergency situations (enough for 2 bottles) and he will also need one bottle once a week for sure. i want to keep the equivalent of 3 bottles in my freezer. how to proceed? when to pump and for how long?
thanks in advance for the help.
