My dd is going through her 6 week spurt. I was wondering what I should do considering that I think I have much lower supply than I thought. (She wouldn't breastfeed after getting a bottle most of the day, so I nursed her upright and it worked. When I did she was at the right breast nursing perfectly for about 1 minute, the other about 10 seconds [this after about 1.5 hours after feeding/pumping].) Should I take the risk of nursing her constantly? Or should I bottlefeed and risk not being able to pump? I just bought an SNS, but can and will try the finger feeder I got before.
Also, when I do get a lot of milk, it always seems to be in one place (upper right corner on the left breast, for instance) and I get TONS of blocked milk ducts in both breasts, and have a recurring blocked pore on the right side.
Update: 40 minutes after nursing her I pumped for ~10 minutes (I didn't time it) and got ~1/2 oz on left, ~1/4 oz on right (current average for right). Could it be because she left some milk in the breast? Should I have gotten this output in better time for it to count as the rough amount in my breasts?
