This cycle has got me !
Monday - Friday I work 9hrs a day. I pump twice at work.... and that was enough...baby hit 4 months (and this is after the growth spurt) and he increased his intake from 2.5 oz up to almost 4 ! How in the world did we get here? My sitter even asked what was going on. When she started, his bottles were 2.5 --3oz. She started telling me that he was starting to talk almost 2 bottles in one sitting. I asked her to do other "comforting" things instead and it didn't work. Even when DH is home with him, he says the same thing..
So now I am a little stressed! I only pump 3-4 oz a sessions. and he's drinking 12-14 oz while I am at work now! (gone a total of 9.5 hrs).
I am taking fenugreek, and eating oatmeal. My food is good. Today I only had 8 oz of breast milk. I had to take out the formula. But told her to only use in emergency!
Today I am trying to increase my pump sessions from 2 to 3 at work. I try to pump at home, but I am usually unsuccessful.
in the event I have to supplement with formula, do I give it to him full? Mix with bm? I can't remember... Joshua did have to have formula this early I don't think...
