I'm nursing DD and then pumping... Overnight she nurses one side and I pump the other. Normally I get an oz and a half to 2 oz on the side she doesn't nurse... Now I'm getting 1/2 oz. Yes, I know that pumping output means nothing in terms of supply but when you're having to express milk to supplement, it matters! It took me 3 pumpings just to get an oz and a 1/2 so I still had to add donor milk from my friend.
WTH? I know her latch is jacked up and she's not nursing as well but seriously? I'm pumping after feeds and this is what's happening?
I'm going to buy an SNS today... I will keep this baby at the breast regardless. Besides, I think it would help to nurse both sides and then insert the SNS tube so she stays at the breast for her supplement. I think she'd take less supplement that way too because she'll have the comfort of the breast as well.
