breastfeeding with baby latching on will help slim down faster but how bout expressing breast milk w/o baby latching on? will it have the same effect? i'm expressing my breastmilk every 3-4 hours but it is not enuf so in between my baby still take formula. is this also considered total breastfeeding? so far the most i'm able to express out is 140ml for both sides (pumping for 20mins each side). quite demoralising.....
how long in between pump that you can get amount that is about 100+ ml?
I really envy all of you.. you all got so much breast milk to give.. But not me.. I think i have been eating all those tonics for more milk. but still not much...
Thomson Medical Center nurses told me pumping is not as effective as latching on to increase supply. I think I overdid the pumping (subconsciously wanted to prove them wrong) and now am suffering with the abundance. Been putting cabbage leaves and cold pack to decrease my supply. Its more than a week but its still engorged. I dont know what i'm doing wrong.
felicissimo, who feeds your baby at night while you pump?
my baby also drinking 120ml every 2 hours. . milk supply also not enough for him.
i will pump every 3 or 4 hr and can get like 100-140ml . .
but still not enough . .
