Re: Concerned about my supply at 2 months
Some questions for you:
- How long are you at work each day?
- How long do you pump for (number of minutes)?
- How does pumping feel?
- How many oz total does your baby get at daycare?
The first thing that strikes me about your situation is that your baby is sleeping a really long time at night. One of the moms here says that night nursing "is a working mom's best friend" because it helps keep daytime supply where it should be, and gives the baby plenty of opportunities to practice nursing.
The second thing that strikes me is that you're sometimes skipping nursing sessions when you are somewhere you don't feel comfortable nursing. I totally understand why some moms feel uncomfortable nursing in public, but when there's a question about supply, you do not want to skip nursing sessions or use the bottle to stretch out the time between sessions. Ideally, when you're out and want to use a bottle, you'd immediately slip away to pump in order to make up for the stimulation you missed out on.
