Re: The "F" word.
Wow you sure were dedicated the first time around, so good for you
With my first I BF'd for 13weeks and when I went back to work full time my supply tanked and didn't do well pumping at all. I was never able to pump much and I went to formula.
This time around I want to make it work. Starting around 3 weeks pp, I would pump once in the morning to start my stash. I was returning to work at 7 weeks pp. Not much time at all, but I had to go back. I was only pumping 2 oz at that time but it was enough. Now my DS is 10 almost 11 weeks old and I have been pumping for a month at work and still have a nice supply in my freezer. I have a older PIS and my supply started to dwindel so I rented a hospital grade pump for the month and already noticed a difference. My guys is a bit of a chunk but while at daycare he take 3, 3 oz bottles and I have been able to keep up.
My milk supply is so much better this time around. I hope that this gives you some hope that it will work.
Congrats on your prengnancy and try not to stress about it, because I am sure thats not going to help.
