Re: Insufficient latch/suck? Or low supply?
Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new baby!
Based on the information provided, it's hard to say what the problem is. Some questions for you:
- How often does baby nurse? Is he nursing at least 10-12 times per day?
- How does nursing feel?
- Is baby sleepy or jaundiced at all?
- How often are you pumping? (You mentioned getting 1.5 oz after a 5 hour break- are you generally going 5 hours in between pump sessions?)
- What sort of pump are you using?
