I've been having letdown problems for a couple of weeks; Anja was choking and wheezing all through her feedings. A lactation consultant advised I pump for 3-5 minutes before each feeding to help with the initial spray which has provided some relief. However, another consultant told me not to pump because I would just produce more milk (which is ok because I'm storing up). I'm just curious what others have done.
Also, what is anyone's experience on when the baby starts to cut back from the 8-12 times per day nursing?
I'm glad to see so many people on the forum. I empathize with so many people. I don't have a lot of support other than my husband. My friends act like breastfeeding shouldn't be rocket science, but sometimes it really feels like it is!
