We have a long history of problems BFing with my 4 month old DS. Low weight gain, painful nipples, long feeds. low supply. We had his PTT and ULT revised at 8 weeks but haven't seen any improvement. We have done suck training, CST and around the clock pumping to get my supply up. Right now I nurse him 7 times a day and supplement 3 oz of EBM via bottle after each feed. I pump 4 times a day.
At his last visit to the IBCLC, he only transfered 2 oz at the breast. Obviously this is not enough for us to try and wean the supplement. I'm at the end of my rope and am planning to gradually wean my pumping and let my milk dry up. I don't have any hope left that his milk transfer is going to improve.
I'm so sad that things turned out this way as I wanted to do extended BFing, but I don't know what else I can do.
