I have been pumping for almost six months now, but haven't figured this out.
It takes me a while to get a let down but then I gush, I don't always get a second let down any more and if I stop pumping in the middle of the first letdown I don't always get more milk.
I need to up my son's calories, for now he is on mommy milk, thickener and oil, but he is still having a lot of trouble feeding and needs more calories. The feeding clinic wants us to use formula but with less water per scoop of powder but if I can pump and just give him hind milk they are willing to let me try that.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
