This is my first post here and I'm feeling overwhelmed and frustrated. I'm the mom to beautiful b/g twins who were born unexpectedly via emergency c-section at 30 weeks. I was a pumping machine during their six week stay in the NICU. They were fed EBM until two days before their discharge when my milk supply suddenly couldn't keep up with their demand. Now I feel I'm a gerbil going around on those silly wheels.. my milk supply is not even close to keeping up with them. I had to start supplementing out of necessity and now I feel I can't ever go back. I pump about 20-24oz a day and need at least double that. They have been home for 10 weeks and haven't been interested in nursing until recently. I will have them latch on and nurse how long they want too and then supplement after the feeding. We seem to be both frustrated with that.. them with the lack of milk, me with just plain exhaustion.
In a perfect world, my supply would be enough for them. I would love to have that magically happen. I just don't know how long I can keep this up. Any advice??
I think I'll cross-post this on breastfeeding multiples as well.
