I knew I was going to have to go back to work so I started pumping and freezing my breast milk about 6 weeks before my job started. I pumped about 4 ounces per storage bag because all the guidelines say the baby should eat about 3 ounces every 2 to 3 hours. I thought I was covering my ass with the 4th ounce... Well my daughter is eating 5 to 7 ounces at a time and having 3 to 4 bottles while I am gone!!! My mom is the one that usually feeds her. She feeds her in a more upright position so the bottle is less likey to pour, burps her often and does paced feeding. I asked her if maybe my daughter is just bored and wants to play but my mom said she's tried playing with her but Greta definitely shows signs of being hungry. She'll make her a 3 ounce bottle but she always wants more. I feel like everything is being done the right way and shes still Little Miss Piggy! I can't keep up with this and I am scared! I don't want to have to supplement; I am seriously freaking out.When I am home she does nurse a lot but usually falls asleep in the process. She is only 13 weeks old and she is an average size. She isn't a huge baby at all! I need suggestions please! How should I boost my supply so that I can pump more at one time? I looked into fenugreek and its so expensive but if thats what I have to do I guess I'll have to do it.
This is her most recent picture that shows some of her body. As you can see she has meat on her bones but she's no Michelin Baby!
