Hi all - FT mom here with preemie twins (born at 34 weeks). They spent 3 weeks in the NICU and have been home just a few days. My dream is to BF my little ladies but I feel like that is slipping away. Have been pumping 8+ times a day since delivering them and cannot seem to increase the volume of BM that I produce. I spent time with the hospital LCs every day that my LOs were in the NICU. I've done everything they suggested and more to no avail; I only get 7 - 8 oz of BM total per day and I have to pump for 30 minutes at each session to get that.
Our pediatrician has a LC on staff and I am trying to decide whether or not I should make an appointment. Did any of you truly benefit from seeing a LC; specifically with regard to increasing supply? I'm finding it hard to imagine what else there is that they can have me do/try.
