I started using the SNS two weeks ago and everything was going well. I was able to reduce the amount of supplement I give my LO and I think she was getting more breast milk.
Suddenly today she refuses to latch most of the time on unless I have the SNS on. I will offer her the breast and she will turn her head and cry. Then I offer with the SNS and she latches on.
I'm also worried about my supply because I pump every time I use the SNS (about 2-3 times a day) and lately I've pumped absolutely nothing after feeding her. I usually also pump twice after putting her down at night and I'm getting about 1/2 oz less. Yesterday I had to supplement 4 times and ended up giving her 8 oz of supplement instead of the 5-6 oz I had been giving her for the past week. The only thing I can hope is that she's getting breast milk while at the SNS and that's why I'm pumping nothing. The only indication of that is that yesterday LO and I both got frustrated during the middle of a feeding so I gave her to my husband and pumped and got almost an oz.
I'm so worried. I don't know what to do. I don't want to start having to use the SNS every time I need to feed her.
