Thread: Exclusive pumping and oversupply

  1. #1

    Default Exclusive pumping and oversupply

    My baby is 9 weeks old and I exclusively pump because I was unable to get her to latch on. She seemed way to impatient for let down and would get entirely to mad to ever latch. Is there still hope of getting her to latch on. This exclusively pumping is really wearing me out. I pump about 80oz a day and already have 180 bags of frozen milk, is this the norm?

    No, not normal, but happens when you EP and have an oversupply.

    You may be able to get her back. Call a local IBCLC and also look at

    I feel you. I've been EPing for almost 18 months as my fourth son was born unable to nurse because of a cleft palate. I hate it. It's exhausting.
