So here’s what’s going on:
My 5 month old baby got a cold on Sunday. I have been trying to pump since then to keep up since I know when they’re sick it’s hard for them to eat with a stuffy nose and breathe. I have only been able to get half an ounce or less out a day. Compared to last week getting two ounces each time I pumped. (I usually pump every other day).
In the last two days I have been pumping two to three times a day as well as power pumping at night and still having the same results. My baby is doing much better now. However now he is pulling away from the breast and screaming at different times during the day and eating ALL night long (before he would only eat once a night). Hes having a lil less than normal wet diapers.
I also started the pill a week ago and am wondering if that is what’s causing this.
He could be teething however, I don’t think that would affect my pumping. I’ve checked the pump replaced the batteries etc (I use Medla freestyle).
Thank you for your time!
