Ok. To avoid making a long story again in another post. I'll quickly just share that I tried bf from the start and jaundice got in the way and i was a pump only breastmilk - fed from a bottle.
Now my dd is 8 weeks and my supply was getting really low. I was nervous that I was going to have to switch to formula, but after taking vitamins (fenugreek) my supply is slowly getting better.
But just for the heck of it ...to my AMAZEMENT, my dd took to the breast for the first time in a month and a half. I am hoping this will bring up my supply as well. I was so excited. but...not sure if its her or my low supply I dont feel like she is getting a lot/enough. I try to listen to her swallowing, but i only really feel like she is in the first 5 min (we still go about 30 min on each breast). I feel liek I am a pacifier after that!
After the HOUR (mom a little sore at this length .. pumping was only 20 min! HAHA) she sometimes still cries, sometimes even screams, like she wants more. SO I feed her half of what I would normally feed her if it was all bottle.
After an hour on the breast should she be satisfied? I know its easier to just give the expressed milk, but I kind of like that she is taking to the breast. But its A LOT of work to sit there for an HOUR..then have to feed her from the bottle anyway!
