I am Mama to a beautiful 6.5 week old baby boy. We have struggled with breastfeeding since birth. I have worked to increase a low supply due to a rocky start (preterm, jaundice, and poor latch). After suffering through these 6.5 weeks in constant pain (clamping, gumming, raynaud's phenomenon, blocked ducts and blisters) I have decided to try EP. I am having a difficult time emotionally - a lot of ups and downs, back and forths - wanting so badly to give my son my milk and wanting to quit. I have a renewed determination after finding this site. I think the hardest part of EP is managing my sons care and a consistent pumping schedule and sleep. I would appreciate any suggestions/advice/stories about how others have maintained regular pumping schedules between/during feedings, care, sleep, and occasional Mommy only time?
