Re: I'm at SUCH a loss, I feel like I'm failing my baby :(
i'm curious where your LC is in all of this. it sounds like you have a lot of questions that any basic LC consultation should address. so have you been oover this with her and you still have questions? or did she fail to address these with you? either way i think you need to go talk to her again or find a new, better IBCLC who actually can help you sort through these issues. for example, an IBCLC should know and tell you that a 2-3 oz weigh-feed-weigh is pretty standard/good intake. and that pumping is a bad indicator of supply.
