I am having trouble pumping/producing. I have tried to pump a couple of times after feedings and I am barely getting a half an ounce on each side. How many times a day should I be pumping? I am getting frustrated and a little dperessed because I so desperately want this to work out. I am letting my newborn sleep 4 hours once a night and a couple of times I let him wake him up around three hours. Has my milk supply gone down because of this?
Is there a better time to be pumping?
Also, what is the best way to strore breastmilk?
I plan on giving my newborn a bottle after week 3 and currently we are a couple of days away from my newborn being 2 weeks old. Should I be pumping into bottles and then combine them to go into the freezer?
Thanks for the advice..I really appreciate it!!
