My boyfriend and I decided to Exclusivly pump, its what I wanted but he wanted to wait till my supply was up..
My problem is. I pump every 2 hours, and get 2-2.5 ounces but that isnt each breast thats in total.... my son eats every 3 and eats about 5-6 ounces... as you can see this give me zero chance to get ahead to even have like 3 bottles extra or freeze some, we basically go bottle to bottle, I dont want to have to give him alot of formula.. The very first time i pumped i got 4 ounces in total.
i pump every 3 hours at night and get 3 ounces in total, should i switch my pumping to every 1.5 hours, and set the speed higher, i remember in the hospital they told me to pump on medium. I want this to work atleast till hes 6 months old... but I dont know if I can. I dont really enjoy breastfeeding. but if i need to go back in order to avoid formula I will.
