I'm feeling a little overwhelmed.
I have a 6 week old who I am exclusively breastfeeding. I had to start back to work sooner and my husband and I anticipated so I dove right in to pumping. My husband is staying home with our little one at the moment. Right now, I'm pumping about 10 oz. over three sessions during the day and LO is consuming all of it. I'm not sure if that is enough or too much or just right. It was so much easier when I was home and he could just take what he needed directly from me.
Also, I had a surgical biopsy on my left breast several years ago that cut through several milk ducts. During my pumping sessions, I get about an ounce from that breast for every 3 I get from the other one. Is there some way to increase this?
Also, we're using medela slow-flow nipples and my husband says that LO is still gulping the milk down very quickly and then acts like he is not satisfied. Although I haven't seen this in action, from my husband describes the problem is more about LO wanting to suckle than to actually eat and he seems to get frustrated with the bottle.
I would greatly appreciate any suggestions and guidance.
