I have an 8 week old beautiful baby girl that is exclusively breastfed. I am scheduled for oral surgery to remove my wisdom teeth in 2 weeks. I cannot breast feed her for 48 hours after the surgery. Now, let me just say that if I could avoid anything having to do with dental work I would, and actually I try to as much as possible lol. This surgery is necessary and urgent. I exclusively breastfed my first daughter and was never successful with pumping which was fine because I find pumping a hassel anyway. But now it's necessary and I have no idea how many ounces I'll need for 2 days! From what I've read they say babies of that ahe drink 2-3 ozs 10-12 times a day. I can only get 1-3 ozs at a time and trying to fit 3 pumping sessions in each day. My nipples are starting to become sore. Does anyone have advice???
