He's eating 4 oz bottles when I'm working. I'm barely pumping 4 oz during the day at work. I have to assume he's going to eat 2-3 bottles during the day (with me nursing him at lunch). Right now, for every day, we're 2 bottles in the red.
I had all these plans last week to pump every 2 hours, etc but then I got sick so :shrug:. It took everything I had to keep myself hydrated enough to nurse him all weekend, let alone pump anything.
I try pumping when I feed him, but at work, it's near impossible. Home is easier, but I literally get an oz if I'm lucky.
I was drinking 4-7 16 oz glasses of water during the day before I got sick and it did NOTHING but make me feel ill. I'm worried he's not getting enough out now either because he used to be very satisfied with just eating on one and now it takes both before he's full.
Real LC consultations aren't covered by my insurance and I can't get a free minute at work to even call to see how much it would be oop. Every spare minute I have at work I'm either pumping or walking 10 minutes to go nurse him.
I've got a bottle of fenugreek here but the LC at the breastfeeding group basically said don't bother, drinking water is more helpful and less smelly.
I just can't believe that I can go 2-3 hours and only pump barely 2 oz (combined from both).
