Evynn was 6 lb 5 oz at birth, now she is 6 lb 8 oz at 2 wks of age. i know this is "okay" but I was aiming for "great" so I'm trying to up my supply with my hand pump. I read about pumping on one boob while feeding on the other. So I tried that and had a good result. However, isn't this stealing milk from the baby??? And how many days do I need to do this? At every nursing?? It's hard to coordinate, especially when her two older brothers look forward to cuddling with Mommy when I sit to feed the baby. Both hands are occupied.
I've also tried pumping after the feedings but got just a few drops. I've never had a good pump supply in the past but I've also never pumped while nursing before.
