Hello ladies! I am hoping you can give me some guidance here! I am hoping to return to work, probably 12 hr shifts soon and would like to keep up with my little mans needs. Right now he's 2 months old and eats every hour while hes awake. I try to pump and get maybe 1 oz at a time. I know you can take fenugreek, oatmeal pump more often to up your supply. Even when I am engorged (if I get blessed with a sttn situation) I only get 1 oz. My fear is that even being away from him i won't pump enuogh, lose my supply and have to use formula. I really would be unhappy (not that I think formula is awful but I want to bf). Any ideas here to helo me out, either building a supply or getting let downs during pumping.
Oh my pump is an ameda purely yours. I have the bigger shields and still get some skin squished on the sides. I have even worn my son while pumping to try to help get more and no such luck!
