Does anyone have an issue maintaining a steady breastmilk supply while pumping? It seems like I'm always either pumping way too much milk (once it gets going) or pumping way too little milk (because I've slowed down)
For example, I typically pump every feeding during the day for 30 minutes both breasts. This typically makes my breast milk amount rise. If I pump for 15 minutes, or 20 minutes, my breast milk decreases. But it never seems to stay steady, even at 25 minutes. I didn't know if anyone else had any issues with this.
Sidenote-I pump becuase even at 7 weeks, the pd recommended we add cereal because he was spitting up so much of his milk, so I rarely feed him direct from the breast anymore even though we both like the close contact.
Thanks for your replies. :)
