It has been two weeks back to work and apart from the first two days, I 've managed so far to pump every day the milk for the next day. However, I need to increase pumping output, without interfearing with bf. I definitely need 3-4oz per day more, as I want to be sure she won't need to supplement with formula any more.
I heard the following trick and I wonder if anybody has tried it:
You nurse during the night from the one breast and first thing in the morning you pump the other, that has rested all night long and can produce an adequate amount for one feeding.
At the moment my lo feeds from both sides and if she sleeps before finishing both, she wakes up one hour later to finish her meal. If I try such a thing I should prepare my self for some sleepless nights until my breasts adjust. I just wonder if it works and how much time it needs to regulate.
