So, I went to my WIC appt today and asked them to give us more formula. I am right now buying $45 worth on top of the $150 worth they give me. She is only drinking about 5 oz bottles... what about when she is drinking 8 oz???? They said that they gave me the most they can. So that made my decision to relactate. I start a new job 2 weeks from today, and I am going to pump there.
Soooo my ? is... I know I need to pump between 2-3 hours. But how long should I pump for each time? Last time I tried it I got a few drops, but it hurt, so I stopped at like 10 minutes. How long should I go??
And what if she doesn't want to latch on again. I have been having baths with her, and I will continue to do topless skin to skin time.... but what if even after all that she won't latch. Does this happen??
