    Pony how much did u express? I want hubby to do one feed a day for me but unsure how much I need for him. Breast feeding is exhausting.

    Channy how are you today?

    Pony don't feel guilty but I to will warn you expressing can be more time consuming and also can affect your supply.

    That's all I can remember oops. I'm sooooo tired

If you decide to express full time a word of caution you may find it more time consuming than bf yourself as I know others have had this experience and found it exhausting. I take a long time to pump anything even though my supply is good. But of course everyone is different and no way to know unless you try. I would just wait a while longer if it was me as it may affect your supply to solely pump when it's only just establishing at this early stage. Have James at the breast as much as you can manage.
    Thankyou! I felt so bad

    I'll try and breast feed as much as possible id love to freeze a stash though just for those times I need to be out or I need a sleep. It was good for DH to feel useful too.

    About 60ml, I used an online calculation thingy but I was prepared to get up and top him up if needed but it seemed to be the perfect amount

    Squiggs; I heard on the grapevine that you can get discounted-formula if you are feeding twins. Have you looked into this? What brand are you using? Call the company and ask them. Alternatively, places like Priceline Pharmacies should know what the process is. I am almost certain that you are entitled to a decent price-reduction if you are feeding twins.

    Pony, I was told that if you express, have baby on your lap whilst you do it...apparently it helps with the let-down, and you will pump more. (When we are near and touching bubs, the brain releases oxytocin which signals to the muscles of the milk ducts to contract and propel milk towards the nipple. Marvellous bit of human engineering!).
    I am not good at expressing for some reason. I don't get much, even though I have good supply. But you are right, it is good to have some EBM "on ice" for emergencies.
    My Paediatrician told me that it takes 6 weeks to establish lactation, so regular feeding is important if you want to continue to breastfeed.
    I am at the point now where I am really enjoying it. Apart from when Oscar is around and she keeps sticky-nosing at him!! I rarely have to feed overnight anymore, and she has about 5 feeds over the course of the day. My boobs aren't too big, and I don't leak. So...it does get easier, I promise!!

    I've read too that even thinking about baby, looking at them,or having a picture to look at can help with the let down process.
