Today, I slacked on pumping... DS was MEGA cranky. The one hour that I could've been pumping, I was holding DS while he slept and attempting to latch him so he could comfort nurse. That was a no go but I very much enjoyed holding him close to my breast like that and watching his sweet sleeping face, even if he was 'nursing' on paci. I bought a nipple shield today and will try again tomorrow using that and see if it helps him latch or not. It might, it might not. Either way, no big deal.
I pumped twice today during the day and I just cluster pumped for an hour (10 min on, 10 min off, totaling 30 min of pump time). Out of those 5 pumpings, I think I have 3/4 oz to 1 oz. It's hard to tell because I haven't meshed all the bottles together yet. There is an equal or slightly more amount (couldn't tell) of the warm/fresh EBM to the cold EBM and I figured I would chill it first before adding them together, just to be safe. It looks like 1/2 oz in each bottle though. We'll see tomorrow morning! If so, DS will get 1 1/2 oz of EBM tomorrow morning (I have 1/2 oz or so from yesterday).
I'm off to bed so I can get up at 2am to cluster pump. Wish me luck!
Good luck to all you mama's trying so hard! It's so worth it in the end!
