Thanks all for the advice... but I am already going back and forth and back and forth from right to left. He nurses on right for 20 min, nurses on left for 20 min, dozes for 15 min, nurses on right for 20 min, nurses on left for 20 min, repeat for 12 hours... If I don't eventually supplement him, he starts freaking out crying and kicking and punching. He is only content after feeding between the hours of 11 pm and 7 am. During the day, I just don't make enough. I have been logging more than 20 feeds per day (a feed is nursing on both breasts). He is on me continuously. It has been like this for 6 days.. before that we were supplementing formula on demand but I have been trying to wean him from it by using small amounts (~1/2oz at a time) with SNS only when absolutely necessary.
For the domperidone dose, I am seeing an LC/pedi who prescribed the dose I am on. I need to get her permission to increase, I suppose.
I do have a supportive DH but he is back at work so the days are long and soooo frustrating. I hold out for as long as possible before give formula, but it is so stressful and he is so unhappy and so am I. I am not enjoying any nursing during the day and I fear it is spoiling the whole experience for us both. :-(
The only time LO is happy and content is when DH comes home and I turn him over in desperation, and he gives him 3 oz of formula from a bottle.
