    My 3-month-old premie has very bad reflux, so most of our feedings end in crying fits. Until recently he'd spend about ten minutes on the breast before melting down and I'd give him a couple of ounces of EBM in a bottle (and then pump to make up the difference) so that he would at least have had enough to eat. He's fed on one breast at a time.

    But now I can't make up the difference with pumping, and there's less and less milk in my breasts. I can't count on the baby to drain my breasts, but pumping is clearly messing with my supply. Any suggestions?

    Thank you!
    Just wondering how your supply issue worked out?
