Last week, I was a super producer. It seemed like milk was everywhere once it came in. I leaked in the shower, in the bed and was feeding the baby successfully and pumping to relieve myself from engorgement.
A few days ago this changed. My son is 11 days old now. A few days ago I noticed that he preferred my right breast. He would latch on better and feed for longer on the right side. It got to the point to where he didn't want the left side at all. So yesterday, I started giving him the left side first and spending more time there. He mostly just spits out my nipple or just chews on it. Because he's a preemie and I'm concerned about weight gain, I put him on the right side after trying unsuccessfully for about 15 mins on the left. Then I pump the left.
What I'm worried about is that I have been able to pump less and less from the left. I went from 65ml to 20 ml yesterday to 20 ml today! My breast is soft and squishy and I'm so worried that I've lost my supply. I feed him every 3 1/2 hours, even though he would rather be sleeping.
