I am recovering form mastitis in my right breast and baby will not latch on to it at all. Doctor said to feed her from left then pump right and give it to her in a bottle. We've been doing that for about a week, but I have a couple of concerns.
1. She was already lazy on the breast but I think it's getting worse. She has no problem going from breast to bottle but she is tired of the breast after about 10-15 minutes. She won't take any more breast but 15 or so minutes later she'll chug a couple of ounces from a bottle! That does not seem right to me.
2. If I was feeding her purely expressed breast milk how much milk should she be drinking a day? It's impossible to know how much she is taking off my breast but we are supplementing with about 10oz of bottle right now.
I would love to know if I went to solely pumping and feeding her from a bottle, how much should I give her a day? She eats about 8 to 10 times a day and each feeding varies on the amount she'll eat.
Any advice on a) how much to feed her a day and b) any way to get her more active and longer on my breast would be appreciated.
