Hi moms! First time posting here, I gave birth via a c section at 37 weeks0 days to a baby girl due to placenta previa. Was told by the lactation consultant at the hospital t since my baby is a late pretermer I should feed her on 1 breast, rent a hospital grade pump, pump and supplement with a bottle.
Did that for 2 days, but found baby to have bottle preference. Our pediatrician suggested switching to a syringe, we are finding the syringe process to be exhausting and too time consuming. It takes us 7 minutes at best on each breast, followed by an hour to an hour and a half on the syringe to give her 30 ml, which is the amount our pediatrician suggested to make sure she doesn't loose weight. Which she has been doing so far.
Does anyone have suggestions to make this easier or faster? We cannot afford a LC to come to our house to help us, so would appreciate any suggestions
