as baby gets older? I am pumping 8 times per day, 15-20 minutes each time. I also nurse her before most pumping sessions, then supplement with pumped bm afterwards (then I pump). She typically takes 3 oz per bottle, and I usually pump 3-5 oz (combined) each time I pump. When she starts taking more milk each time, will my body produce more when I pump? Or am I stuck at this 3-5 oz per session forever?
I have a very cracked nipple, right at the base, on the left side. What can I do to help this? I put olive oil in the flange tubes so friction decreases, I use lanolin after every nursing and pumping session. It is horribly painful. I'm dreading nursing her on that side. :(
