So I don't have one specific question... lots of little ones, but probably just after some stories, general advice / reassurance.
I had great supply with DD (up to 1L per day) but most of that was donated to the milk bank as she needed far less! She never was able to establish direct BF (despite seeing an LC at least every second day for a month) so we continued with EBM for another 6 months after she was home.
Obviously DD's issues were due to her extreme prematurity, she later went on to have feeding issues when transitioning to solids and we ended up seeing the feeding team at PMH for it all. But it's made me a little anxious about whether I can feed this next bub.
So, chances are I'll be having a near to full-term bub this time (YAY!) and I've already started leaking out of my most productive breast from last time. Whilst I know that's not a sure fire indicator of performance/production, I have a good feeling I'll have no supply issues.
So, do full term babies just 'get it' straight away? How many woman with full term bubs need to see an LC? At what point do you decide you need to? How would you identify a tongue-tie if it were present?
