So my whole pregnancy I've been worried about being able to breastfeed Zoe, so far so good....BUT she has such an appetite I am just not making enough yet. It has only been 2 days since my milk came in and I know I am not at full supply yet, if I pump too much she won't have enough to eat but if I don't pump at all she can't get anything out because it's too engorged. Last night I called my mom in the middle of the night (hawaii time) and asked her what do I need to do she said give her 2oz of formula which I did and little Arthea Franklin (her lungs boy that child has some lungs on her) slept for 3hrs straight first time since she was born. I miss my appt with the lactation specialist today but rescheduled for monday hopefully by then I can get a good enough supply up to keep my baby full and happy.
It has been less than a year (oct. 5th) since I had my breast reduction surgery so I am actually shocked I'm able to produce milk at all, every drop I just want to hug my surgeon more & more.
Well good luck to all you breastfeeding mom's!
