I have been a bit worried about losing my supply the last couple of weeks as he was nursing less but he seems to be more keen to nurse again now and luckily my supply doesn't seem to have dropped too much.
emily has been refusing the breast the past 2 weeks, down to not nursing at all. i can't get squat pumping so i've been hand expressing like mad trying to get built back up. do you pump when he gets a bottle?
Raising my kids with boundaries - NOT battle lines.
Children are not little adults, but they ARE people too!
There's a reason they are called dependents...
AP is not alternative to those who see no other choice
I've never been able to pump - I just don't seem to get anything out I've tried 2 pumps but they have been hand pumps. I think I think I might do better with an electric one but it's just a bit too expensive really.
How is the hand expressing going? I have never been able to do that either!
When Riley first started refusing to nurse, I worried a ton about my supply. I finally came to peace with the fact that maybe things weren't going to work out with BFing and once I relaxed about it things got better and my supply actually increased and we're still nursing. (Almost full time, but he usually gets a bottle in the evenings before bed.)
