Hi! My son will be 4 months on Saturday. I breastfeed exlusively when I'm home and he has breastmilk bottles when I'm at work. I went back to work two days a week when he was 3 months old. I have several questions...
I work in a pediatric intensive care unit and it's so hard to get away to pump sometimes. I've flat out broke in to tears because I'm so engorged and uncomfortable at times. Will my milk supply decrease if that happens to me too many times?
Also how much should he be eating at home? When I work 12 hours, I'm gone from 6:15 am till 8:15 pm. My husband gives him bottles but it seems he eats more for him than I pump at work in that time.
And lastly...should he be on a schedule and sleeping through the night? I was laid back and fed him on demand when I was on maternity leave but now it seems like our days are all over the place and he's up at least once or twice in the night, more on the days I work.
