Okay so I am basically a EP with giving the baby breast 2-3 times a day depending on his mood and how he is feeling. I would like to have him at breast more and we are working on it but he just gets so frustrated cause it isn't "fast" enough. (He was 5 weeks early and in the NICU for 3 weeks so he was bottled and paci from about 10 days old.) So my question is .. I am going back to work, I have has the hospital pump and will be returning it the end of this month. (I have had it and been pumping since 9/17) I just purchased the Ameda Purely Yours and have a Medela something .. can't remember .. but my question is .. When will my production be the same with the non-hospial grade pump? I have been trying to use it and I get so much less .. will my body ever adjust and get the same amount? or will it be what it is? Also, how do I get him to breast more? He has GERD and allergies so when he doesn't feel good it is over. Has Do I just try to latch when he is arched and screaming? I am also on the no whey, lecitin, seafood, dairy, soy, nuts diet and know I haven't been getting enough calories. Does anyone know where I can find foods/quick recipes that do not inculed those things?
Any tips would be great. Thanks so much!
