Mobile: I can't pump for shiz... concern? long
I think I'm too tired to be too concerned but would you be?
DD's first two weeks, I was pumping after every feed at the advice of a LC who thought my supply might be low due to a traumatic delivery. It was a PITA but ok because I had my mother and MIL around to help, and DD was sleeping constantly. I normally was getting 4-6oz or so extra a day
Now I very rarely pump, and when I try I am getting pretty much nothing. Example. This morning DD slept 5 hours for the first time (woo!) and then went pretty ravenous on my boobs. However I was pretty engorged so I wanted to pump to be sure I was emptied (paranoia from bout of mastitis)... I went 5 minutes and got 1/4 ounce between both boobs (then she woke up and I needed to tend to her). So I guess good news - she drained me but bad news - I'm not producing extra.
Anyway, I am just getting a little worried for when I go back to work at 12 weeks (but the first 4 weeks I am back DD will be with DH). Should I just cross that bridge when I get to it? DD is gaining weight well and lots of diapers so I know I am producing enough to meet her current needs, just nothing more.
