The relactation has been going well, but Ollie has started needing up to 2.5 oz top up after each BF again and i know that unless i start to drop the the feeds bit by bit there no way my milk will increase to the amount he need, but like the title says im too scared to start dropping them
Ollie will have a full BF first thing in the morning and will go for around 2 hours before needing another feed but as the day goes on his suck seems to become lazy and he is requiring more of a top up or he just get really frustrated and start clamping down on me and pulling ...which really hurts
I'm really struggling as i cant see a way out of this
When i hand express after each feed i can get milk, so im not sure why hes getting so wound up and i know by having a bottle it literally 'on tap'. Do i just bit the bullet and start cutting down?
The Health Visitor is extremely supportive but she is also wanting to keep a very close eye on his weight, which again worries me as Ollie cant afford to lose any at all
any advice or suggestion would me much appreciated
thanks for reading
