I am new to this site and I have a 1 week old baby girl. She latches on great and seems to suck well for about 5 to 10 minutes per breast (she has never nursed for more than 12 minutes per breast). Sometimes she is even to sleepy to nurse on the other breast. I have been pumping after most feedings and I am only getting 5 to 10 mls total!!! Do you think that she is just a really efficient feeder or do you think that my milk supply is really low?
Her output is really good so I think that she is getting enought to eat. We do occasionally supplement with formula when her feedings are less than 5 minutes. I would love to supplement with breast milk but I can't build enough up!
I don't know how I would ever build up a decent milk supply when I go back to work.
Any thoughts? I am so overwhelmed/tired/stressed/full of anxiety about all of this
