my LO is nursing every 1-2hours during the day, then a 4-6hr stretch (10pm-4am) if we're lucky but after that it's 1-2hrs again.. I think I need to get her to take more at a feeding, any suggestions?
I had thought that my milk supply must be sorting itself out by now (at 15 weeks) but reviewing the list of forceful letdown symptoms I realize she still does all these things (http://kellymom.com/bf/got-milk/supp.../fast-letdown/)
A local LC had told me to hand express before feeding so she wouldn't be getting so much formilk so I did and her green poop started to be yellow again, but I stopped because I thought I might be increasing my supply. The poop is still yellow but she rarely nurses beyond the first letdown and based on pumping one time I don't think she's getting more than 2-3oz each time she nurses. She takes short naps and gets bad gas and fusses a lot still. I'd hoped by now all this stuff would be getting better!
Any suggestions would be great
