I have also posted on breastfeeding board but wanted to see if any May mommas had any advice or answers!
LO is a month old and I have been EPing since she was born. She was in NICU for over a week and we live over an hour from the hospital so that was the only way I could get BM to her.
I tried getting her latched on in the hospital but struggled due to stress and her fussiness. Just was not a good experience.
Since we have been home I have put her to breast a few times when she is really fussy so that she will calm down a bit while the bottle is getting ready. I think she latches on allright, but sometimes I feel like she just has a hold of my nipple and it is painful. Anyway, EPing can be a pain sometimes. It takes alot of time to pump and planning when we go out for a few hours.
So I want to try to get her to BF on a regular basis atleast until I go to work in a few weeks and then I will have to pump at work. I just don't know how to start... How do I know LO is getting full? Right now we have her eating every 2hrs and on demand a night. Do I keep her on this schedule if I BF?
Has anyone else been in a similar situation or have any advice??
