Re: Just about ready to quit and ff
Don't be so stressed about what the info on the shield says. I used a shield for a few weeks with Lilah and I did pump in the morning and at night. Well, I accidentally gave myself a bad case of oversupply and a very fussy baby by doing that. It sounds like you are producing enough milk for your baby, with the shield. I would probably even stop that one pumping a day - or just continue that if it makes you feel better - but not stress about pumping twice. Your baby is getting enough milk and is thriving, you just need to calm down.
What is it that is so stressful for you about the shield? If it's just the supply thing, let that go and just keep the shield. I didn't like it because it was hard to nurse at night laying down and having to deal with the shield, so I finally just went for it and had the confidence in both she and I to do it without.
