Re: lost baby-now adopting.Pump???
I think the answer to that question is different with every woman. Some moms need to pump really frequently in order to maintain supply, some don't. My feeling is that you should adjust your pumping schedule by output- if your output dwindles to a level that is unacceptable to you, add some pumping sessions back in and boost is back up again.
Does anyone have any advice on how often to pump to just keep some supply? And then to ramp it up. I was thinking like 4-5 times a day to keep it up and then go to the normal every 2-3 hours the month and a half before he is born???
But 4-5 times a day to start with, and then every 2-3 hours before your baby is born sounds like a great starter schedule!
What sort of adoption are you doing? Open or closed? If you're choosing open adoption, then perhaps you could be there when your baby is born, and nurse soon after birth. A good start in the early days can really help get your nursing relationship off to a good start!
I have read so much about adoption bf and want so badly to be successful at it
What a beautiful gift from you, and from your last baby to your next one.
and feel such a sense of redemption that my first born did not get to have it but I can use it for our next.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
