I am sucessfully breastfeeding Dylan. I would like to have the option to leave him at home with Dad for longer than 1 hour.
I started pumping only one ounce at a time with the Gerber Massage N Go Manual Breast Pump to introduce the bottle. He refuses a bottle (smart boy),I have tried many different brands. My doctor told me to try a sippy cup so I pumped an ounce and he took it right away.
My problem is:
Now that I found an alternative to the breast, I can't seem to pump more than an oucne-ounce and a half off a full breast. Am I using the wrong pump? Is there one anyone reccomends? I don't want to spend a whole lot on another, the one I bought was $60CAN
The Gerber one I have is not painful, and seems easy to use but I think I should be able to get at least 4ounces at a time. (the container it comes with will hold 6ounces)
My goal is to have a small supply of frozen milk available for dad to feed Dylan periodically(once a week maybe) while I am out.
