Izy sorry lol my posts came online weirdly , I wasn't replying to your post but to the bit about how if storage capacity is larger the baby will sleep through night earlier etc def don't believe that
Agree with izy too about response times - after years of breastfeeding, I think my breasts just make it on demand, never feels like there is anything stored at all.
lol, all good CTM
Peasmum- that's the thing. My son wasn't more satisfied than other friends children who couldn't pump much, if at all. These days I'll take 20mins and get 5-10mls, but I'm still feeding DS well and never have no milk.
It seems that my breasts are just in 'response' mode more than store mode now... Doesn't mean he has less milk though.
I agree with you Peasmun!! Serious pump envy! I'm not very responsive to the pump at all now! When he was a newer bubs and first started sleeping longer than 3 hours for the first stretch, I would get up and pump (no choice, lol) and would get close to 200ml. These days I get very little. How are you ladies able to pump a litre? Was it always like that?
no- i was a freak for that much, and it didn't last. I had massive oversupply issues. Then again my son was born under the 10th percentile and fed as much as twins!
and oops... typo 19 weeks
Thanks again. Yeah, I know 19 weeks is early days. Feeding twice a night is good, especially as it doesn't take 1.5hr to get him back down anymore! He wakes up more than that though; usually 3-5 times on average.
It's so helpful hearing about others' experiences to put things into perspective.
It's interesting to hear that storage capacity can change from pregnancy to pregnancy!
Around 3-4 months your supply will settle down I'm not sure what your EDD was but 19weeks is part of a stormy period on the wonder weeks chart. I'd say your doing beautifully, stop trying to fix something that's not broken have faith and trust your body
