I pump between 30-40 oz in a day. Since I started pumping so early when I had him I have a surplus so I usually end the day with about 2-4 bottles in the fridge.
He only nursed 10 minutes because I was in a rush trying to get too many things done before we were leaving for our appointment. So I grabbed a bottle and he had 4 oz. I've been struggling when I nurse him lately. It's upsetting because we were doing so good. I get this overwhelming feeling sometimes of feeling irritated. It's the sensation of the sucking that I sometimes can't stand. Like when your about to get your period you don't want to be touched. That's how I feel, and I felt that way with my daughter aswell nursing her. It's such an awful feeling, when the moment should feel nurturing, bonded and special. I only feel like that half the time and when I feel like that I have a pity party while grabbing his bottle. Once I get back to him we get all nestled up and I feel at ease. I feel like that is how I should feel nursing.
Nothing else has been tested for or talked about besides the eczema and seeing a dietician and dermatologist. One of the ped's said that maybe a dietician would be able to help concentrate his feeds. I don't really understand how you can concentrate a feed, to get more calories? doesn't make sense to me.
