I would love to wean off SNS and go EB!!!
Warning, long history below!!
After nights of crying and pulling my breasts with no milk a local LLL leader visited me, weighted the baby. Borned at 3.2 and 8 days later only 3.05kg. She immediately told me that my baby is dehydrating and needed to be supplemented with formula.
I started supplementing 30ml, and then 60ml and now the baby takes up to 90ml. I pumped the first 2 months but with only 30ml~40ml in total for both breasts every 4 hr (2hrs after feeding).
Had the LLL leader come visit every week checking on the baby's weight, everything's GOOD since SNS a happy baby.
BUT she started to have a weird nursing strike since mid 2nd month and would cry and cry and cry when she sees my breast, much less when I try to put the tube in! So I've been only able to feed her with the SNS WHILE she sleeps with my breast in her mouth unconsciously.
She is now 3month and 14days old, doesn't refuse to take my breast anymore but still refuses SNS while awake. It is really hard trying to get her to fall asleep when it's time to nurse....
SO, the ultimate question, should I wean her off SNS, but what if she get's too hungry?? I hate to starve my baby!!!!! breaks my heart How would one know if she's got enough supply?
I am already on Domperidone with little difference, with Mother's milk plus with better results (from 30ml =>60ml in total/4hrs).
