I was breastfeeding but with my sons tongue tie and his inability to suck enough to transfer milk we have moved to bottle feeding and pumping while we work through his suck training and tongue tie issues.
Having him at the breast was a struggle- he would cry and would come off hungry after every single feed no matter how long he was there.
I am trying to pump 10 times a day but realistically taking care of a 4 week old I am only getting in 8-9 pumping sessions a day on a weekend. I am not sure how the week is going to go. I feel like I have more of a relationship with my pump than I do my son at this point.
Anyway, how can I increase my supply? I am taking fenugreek and malanguay.
Anyone out there with experience? How long so I have to pump this often?
Other facts, ill start it with about 100- 130ml in the am pumping sessions but afternoons and evening only produce 60-30ml which is not enough to sustain my little man so we are using supplementing with formula because the baby needs to eat.
This is such a pain and breastfeeding is so much easier i am so hope that he will learn to suck and take the breast again.
