I go back to work next week and I'm trying to fill up the freezer. I only have about 30 oz in there now and am freaking out!
Yesterday she went to daycare for 7.5 hrs and drank 10 oz. That's in the range I expected (7.5 - 11.25). I sent 11 oz.
While I was away from her yesterday, I pumped twice and got a whopping 5 oz. I pumped a little more when she was down for her nap and got another oz.
Today, I've been getting an oz here and there and have nursed constantly (every 1.5 hrs or so) and pumped also.
I'm totally freaked that I'm not going to be able to produce enough next week and my freezer stash will disappear in the first couple of days.
I did get some Mothers Milk tea and have been doing 2 cups a day for 2 days. I haven't noticed the maple syrup smell in my pee or a change in my output. How long will it take for that to kick in?
I'm nursing as frequently as she is hungry (and even when she's just fussy a little) and pumping between or when she naps. She does snuggle with me all night and she seems to be constantly on the breast.
What else can I do?
Will I be ok next week?
Someone talk me off the ledge!
