Why is she staying? How often are you pumping? I would nurse her one side and pump the other at the same time. This helps me get the most when in pumping.

when your first start pumping not getting to much is normal. Once you supply comes in it will probab;y be easier. I was unable to get ahrdly anything until mine did and then I got a lot b/c I was so swollen and engorged. I had to pump a little just so my son could latch on right.

This if they are making her stay because of weight I'd throw a fit. She's supposed to loose for the first week. Or is something else going on?

Can you go and nurse her at the hospital?

Continue doing what you're doing. It's exactly right. THe milk will change in the next couple of days... the only thing you can do is carry on as you are.

She didn't end up staying because it wasn't as big of a deal as they made it out to be. She is nursing like a champ today. So happy thanks ladies of the help
