We struggled w/ DS gaining weight, so I went to EP'ing to make sure he was getting enough. I struggled to produce enough & in order to pump what I was I had to pump for 30min each time because of poor let down. I suspect my poor let down was part of our nursing problem too cause DS used to just scream when I put him to breast in the early days. I tried a lot of things to increase my supply but with no success. Recently my freezer stash ran out & we had to start supplementing. It has been exhausting & stressful trying to pump & very discouraging that I can't make enough. So I thought to myself "give yourself credit for what you've done & just switch to formula" but after a few days of dropping sessions, I was starting to feel very weepy. I cried every time I thought about it. I'm not sure if it was a hormonal thing or mental, but I decided I'm not quite ready to give up. However, my supply is dwindling because of how much I had weaned off the pump. Work makes it difficult if not impossible to get in the pumping schedule I need to try to increase my supply. Part of me says I just have to do what I can at home & whatever I get I get, but this stubborn part of me wants to regain what I was producing before. I know the best thing is to nurse baby but because I EP'd early on & he's had bottles, I don't know if he'll have much interest in nursing. I don't think he'll have the patience either since he's not going to want to wait 5-10min for a letdown. Am I crazy to be trying to regain my supply? Is there really any hope that I might be able to regain a nursing relationship at this point? I think time is my biggest enemy. I work FT & have 2 other young children at home. It seems pretty selfish to put everyone else aside to dedicate all my free time to reestablishing supply and/or nursing.
