My 5 wk old seems like her suck has gotten weaker. I had to supplement in the beginning because of her weight loss, she has since gained enough to avoid the doctors office until her two month check up.
I have been trying to pump in preparation for work, I plan on going to work when she is two months old and I know I need at least 1-1.5oz per hour at work...I can only pump maybe 1.5oz from both sides at a time, when she's asleep long enough for me to pump
In the last few days, she has started sucking more than eating, and her suck feels weaker. We broke her of the paci in her third week to reestablish her latch and it got better, until now...she will latch properly, then pull her head back so that she only has nipple in her mouth, when I pull her off and re-latch, she does the same thing and cries...it is really tempting to just give her formula so that I can get a break, my nipples can get a break, and so that I know how much she is getting at a time...any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
