Okay, if you have read my other threads I appear to have a serious supply issue. I work really hard to get my supply up and then within a week it is down. My ds has not gained weight in 1.5 mo-possibly due to only getting foremilk-another issue. Anyways, once my supply is up I go to pumping 2-3 times a day.
My question is, is it neccesary to pump after each feeding? Do you think it would be beneficial for me to go ahead and pump after each feeding to keep my supply up? I am really feeling down, like I am a failure. Part of me wants to quit, but a BIGGER part of me wants to keep working on it. THe hard part is, I am back at work. Some days are 2-3 hours others can be up to 8 hours. Can work and running be a cause in my supply issue? My job is not really that stressful.
I feel like I am in desperate need of reassurance and support.
