Re: Return to work - not keeping up with baby
I will just add (not to sound like a broken record since I've posted this more than once) that a truly slow flowing nipple may be all you need.
I struggle to get 1oz per hour of absence, and my DD was very grumpy after her small (2.5oz) bottles, but when I did some experimenting and found a REALLY slow flowing nipple, the same amount of milk took longer and she was happy at the end.
And that was a change from a "slow flow" nipple in one brand to a different brand. They're not all created equal. Try them yourself - the one that makes you blue in the face is really slow flow!
Something to try...
Mom to daughter C (10/30/11) delivered by midwives in unmedicated birth. EBF after breast augmentation, CD, baby wearing, part time co-sleeping, WOHM.
SAVED by LLL meeting in week one. (no milk for first SEVEN days!)
Weaned DD at 20 months.
Next one due in Feburary 2014!
