Re: 3 week old with tonge-tie
Good advice from the PP. You absolutely should pump every time you give a supplemental bottle. And I have BTDT so I know that it is challenging, but also that it can be done.
One thing you don't have to worry about is not getting a good supply to begin with due to poor feeding. It's possible that this happened, but if it did it's not an unresolveable problem. A lot of moms think that a milk supply is something you get just one shot at, and that if you don't establish a good supply in the early days/weeks of breastfeeding, you're just doomed to have low supply forever. But that's not true. You can increase milk supply at any time by nursing or pumping more. It's often easier to increase supply when you first start out, but it can be done at any time during your life. Seriously, even if you've dried up compleely or never even nursed a baby, it is possible to build a good milk supply.
