I am due with my first child in the middle of October and my child has a condition called gastroschisis where her bowel exists outside of her abdoman and so when she is born she will have to go right to surgery. Her condition is not serious, however, I will probably not get to hands on feed her for 1-2 weeks so I will have to rely solely on pumping. I am scared that I will not produce enough milk this way. Has anyone else been in a similar situation?
Am I correct in ASSUMING my milk will probably not keep up from pumping alone?
