When I pump I feel like I am getting nothing. Last night I only pumped 10 ml in my left breast! This morning looked a whole lot better! I pumped 30 ml in my right breast and almost 30 ml in the left breast
but. I went to bed at 11:30ish and didnt pump until this morning at 7:57 (bad, I know) but it makes me wonder would I have had that much this morning if I would have pumped every 2 hours throughout the night?
Sometimes I feel like my breasts don't have enough time to make more than 10-20ml in 2 hours which is why i'm getting such bad results...?
I am taking reglan, fenugreek and occasionally alfalfa, PLUS eating oatmeal once a day..shouldn't I be pumping more than this?
I'm going to try not to get discouraged, I'm doing what I can to make sure that she gets my breastmilk. But she can eat 4-6 oz of formula (I am having to supplement) and I just don't think I can compete with that! lol
Also, I am only pumping now, no more breast feeding
But I am using the medela advanced personal double pump (pump in style), will this be good enough to keep up my supply since she is no longer nursing? I wish she would nurse but she is rejecting me and has taken a preference to the bottle nipple (avent #1).
We will overcome our low bm issues!
