Re: Long Term Supplementing
oh, mama, i'm so sorry to hear how frustrated you must be today!
you'll need to pump for her a lot more than that to keep up your supply. you'll have to see how your body reacts to the pump and how long it takes to get a second letdown - for me it was 26 mins each time, others longer. and you'll need to pump at least every 3 hours. maybe since your supply is established you could go 6 hours at night. exclusive pumping is HARD WORK so ... take it a day at a time. just pump today, and see if tomorrow or next week or next month she'll take the breast again.
and hang in there, and keep seeking support here and elsewhere!
DS 6/7/11 - Still night & morning nursing, but the rest of the time he just doesn't have time for me! After mostly working at home, gleefully packed away the pump at 11 months.
Another on the way in October 2013!
