Have posted previously in the Newborn forum and received lots of great advice and support so thought I would post again.
Went back to work last week on Valentine's and pumping has not been going well at all. First day back, though I pumped almost every 2/3 hours (4 times!) for around 15-20 mins, I was only able to get a total of 9oz over a 14 hour stretch away from my DD. second day, supply decreased to 8oz but over a shorter timeframe (abt 12 hrs).
However, today, I have only been able to pump 3 times total at work over a 12 hr stretch and only got 6oz.
I am already super depressed and frustrated at having to supplement formula for when I'm away from her (I nurse as much as possible when I'm with her and on weekends) so looking for advice, support and encouragement. I understand it is not the end of the world if I have to give her formula but I was very much hoping to pump much more!
I know me stressing out doesn't help but can't help feeling defeated after putting so much effort into finally being able to EBF.
Just wanted to vent and seek encouragement! Thanks ladies!
