My local llli leader encouraged me to not give my LO anymore bottles. She hasn't had one in two days. Spoon feeding her was torture for both of us so I bought n SNS. I've used it today and it seems to work, but I'm wondering how to incorporate it into our daily supplemental routine.
Usually, I try to nurse and if she's really frustrated at the breast I'll giver her bottle (usually around 2-3 oz) and I'll pump. I end up giving her anywhere between 3-4 bottles a day. At night she does a cluster feed and then I'll pump, take a shower and then pump again. I'm guessing that I would substitute the SNS for the bottles that I giver her, but the way the SNS works, it seems like I'm unable to pump after the feedings. LO seems to like frequent feedings.
Also, my local llli told me I shouldn't let her sleep through the night. That would mean that I would drop my middle of the night pumping session. Will dropping all these pumping sessions ruin my supply. I'd also like to have that milk to give her as supplements.
Does anyone have any experience with this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
