My BG was born at 37 weeks via emergency c section due to a complication. Hasn't been able to sustain sucking for more than 3-4 minutes at a time since then. We've been supplementing with pumped milk . Our LC says BG can take in between .6 to 1oz at a nursing session, supplementing after nursing is between 45-60ml.
Now BG is 1month old and still stuck at the 4 minutes per side pattern, I am exhausted between trying to feed her for 45 minutes, then pump and bottle feed. Doing this every 2.5 hours.... When will things get better? My LC asks me to just hang in there,....but I am at my wits end
I am ready to throw in the towel and just exclusively pump. Any support or words of wisdom will be helpful
