Hi ladies, since DD was born I haven't been bumping as much. Congrats to all the new Mommas, and hang in there to all of the overdue Mommas!
I posted this on the BF board, but figured I'd post it here too...
Hi ladies, my DD is 12 days old and latches and eats like a champ. I have been trying to start pumping periodically to start a freezer supply, but I can pump with my Avent Double electric BP for an hour to an hour and a half and barely get an ounce and a half to two ounces... Is this normal? It seems like it takes forever to get so little.
DD was 9lbs 4oz at birth and has steadily been gaining weight, so I know she is eating plenty. She typically nurses for 15 to 20 min on each side and seems to fully drain me.
Just wondering if I start pumping more often if I will get more? Any tips or tricks for pumping to get maximum results? TIA!
