im a new mom to my 1 month old ladybug and god is she ever hungry, i just have a few questions and frustrations if anyone could help me out that would be wonderful.
I started out breastfeeding her from the nipple until i started gettting chapped and painful, even with lansinoh it hurt, and having her saliva on chapped nipples burned so we switched to pumping and feeding her through the bottle which she did great.. when she was eating 2-3 oz a feeding every 2.5h. now she wants to eat 4-6 oz and im not getting enough milk for her, i pump both sides (not at the same time) for 15 min and the max i get is around 3oz unless i havent pumped for a while.., pumping will be done anywhere between 2-3h or everytime she wakes up at night (5h) now the thing that im confused about is how do you manage to have enough pumped milk to store in the freezer when i cant seem to get enough to last the day, everytime i think im one bottle ahead turns out im 2 behind and have to substitute with formula.
the other thing is eveytime after i pump my nipples are extremely itchy and especially at night painful if it hooks onto my bra.. i wear anti leak pads (the thick kinds) to provide for leak support and for comfort.
so if anyone could help me out that would be greatly appreciated. and thank you in advance
