My b/g twins are 4 weeks old and b/c there was concern with their weight gain, the last 3 weeks consisted of breastfeeding 1 and supplementing with expressed milk and giving expressed milk to the other baby and swapping at the next feed. During this time, I was also pumping after every feed and generally feeding every 3-4 hours.
Since my 1 mth visit w/ pediatrician, I want to go back to exclusive BF but at this point, the babies are feeding on demand and I want to work towards tandem feeding and on a more fixed schedule.
Can anyone please provide me with some tips and tools to help me achieve my goal? I am so lost now as I have been instructed by my pediatrition to BF both babies for 40 min., then offer a bottle supplement (expressed or formula) and b/c i feel that have oversupply from all the pumping I have been doing, I also need to pump often to relieve my discomfort. Meanwhile worrying that if i pump too much i dont have enough milk for whoever wakes up for the next feed.
At this point, feeling completely overwhelmed by what I am suppose to do and not sure if I am doing the right thing towards the right goals?
