It seems I'm always doing a flying visit in here. Ah well, quick catch up
I go back to work on Monday and the thing that's been bothering me the most is whether or not I'll be able to pump enough for Flynn while I'm at work. In the past I'd be able to get around 100-120ml per pumping session but I backed right off on pumping because our freezer was getting full of milk (it's only little lol).
We've since used the larger containers to save space and I am using bags to freeze which take up less room. But now when I pump I get between 30 and 60ml at best . And that's usually in a half hour of pumping on one side. I can't do both sides because obviously he needs to feed from the other side not long afterwards.
So I went and bought a tin of formula because several people have said to me that their biggest problem has been bubs not liking the taste of it after BFing for ages. Of course, he pulled a face and wasn't really interested.
So now I'm freaking out that if for whatever reason I can't get enough milk he'll go hungry because he doesn't like formula. Bit of a drama queen reaction, he's only tried the one formula once and hasn't had the chance to get used to the taste yet. But still, it's hard enough with the mummy guilt to have the stress of worrying that he won't be eating enough because I have to go back to work! I only have three opportunities to pump while I'm at work and if I don't get enough for a full feed each time I'm really going to be in trouble.
