Re: How to continue breastfeeding exclusively for 8 weeks ol
I'm surprised the lactation expert's first thought was inadequate milk transfer. I'd be more likely to suspect that the baby wasn't nursing often enough. Newborn babies typically nurse 10-12 times per day, or even more frequently. They make up for taking in relatively small amount of milk, often just 1-3 oz at a time, by feeding very frequently.
If you want to make more milk, the first thing you should do is to nurse more and pump more. At your current schedule, it sounds like you are nursing or pumping just 6-8 times a day. In you shoes, I would want to nurse at least 8-10 times per day and pump after feedings as often as possible.
