thank you so much! your story is very encouraging and I am even more determined now. Funny thing you mentioned to use the finest tube, I just started to use the finest tube yesterday and i stopped venting the tube so the milk flow from SNS is really slow now and it gets slower as the LO sucks more as the air is depleted in the bottle.
Also good to know you don't get much from pumping either! do you ever feel ur breasts full? I was so convinced that i didn't have much milk judging from the pumping results and soft breasts. But now it looks like it doesn't necessarily mean no milk!
I start to offer my baby the breast every 1.5 hour now, it's not going well expected so far as he is not used to so much breast and didn't seem interested in eating. I hope it will get better tmr when he is hungrier.
thanks again for the encouragement and understanding. For the first time i don't feel so alone and hopeless now!
