Breastfeeding & pumping

Stephanie - posted on 08/18/2014 ( no moms have responded yet )




Hello mama's, I have been EBF my daughter since birth and I just recently wanted to start pumping as well and "saving"..
She is now 7 1/2 weeks old.. I'm worried that if I pump there won't be enough left,
I had such a high amount of milk in the beginning but with EBF my daughter made my breasts only make to what she needed , so i find pumping to be barley anything after a feed. I'm Worried there won't be anything left if I pump before a feed..
How do I "UP" my supply so I can pump in between EBF :) should I just continue to pump even tho there isn't much coming out? And continue to have her on the breast's as much as possible ? Any ideas how I can get my higher flow back
She also doesn't eat at night anymore she sleep 12am to 7/8 pm without a feed
I'll wake her up but she refuses at times drs aren't concerned as she's 10lbs and healthy.
I feel her not eating at night is making my supple go to her needs and not making "as much" as she did at "birth"... Should I wake up and pump until my supple comes back!?
I've been drinking 8+ cups of water and eating. Healthy 3 full meals a day and also snacking ..
