[quote=LLL_Jolie;464914]When she stops, does the milk pool in her mouth or does she let it dribble out?
She does let milk drip out the side of her mouth that she is lying on sometimes...not sure if that's intentional...maybe when she's using me for a pacifier. When she does this, she also gets irritated and pulls back (with my nipple in her mouth!) after I hear her gulp. Tonight she nursed for a good 30 minutes on my "good" side and I heard lots of swallows!
I see now. 1 oz per hour, not per feeding. This is all the more reason to wean slowly. Twenty four ounces is a large percentage of your baby's intake.
So I should stick with 1 oz per day? This is NOT a problem for me...a few weeks is nothing at this point. When my LC told me 1/2 every few days, I thought she meant per feeding...that's why I was so afraid I would starve her.
It does take practice. Did you see the video?
yes, i saw a few videos. i tried the way they did it and nothing...it actually hurt...lol...but i can work on practicing that. if i can't figure it out, maybe i can pump once or twice a day and see what i get...i was pumping all day and night before, so it shouldn't be as bad this way.
