Bub is 11 weeks old and last night at 8:30pm, I decided go express breastmilk an hour before her next feed. Our feeding interval is 3 hours. Only managed to geg 30 ml from both boobs using my Medela swing pump for 30 mins! It was my first time trying to express to get a full feed so my hubby could do the late night feed.
She is gaining weight and doing lots of pooey and wet nappies so I know I make enough milk for her. But last night I worried because I expressed very little.
How does one express sufficient milk for the husband to help out at night or even to have a little stockpile in the freeze for emergencies?
I am new at this. Also wondering if I feed at 6 am, give EBM a 9am, hence bub is not on mh boobs then but only at the 12 pm feed, will my milk supply be affected? I'd like to attend church from 9-11am without breastfeeding but using a bottle.
Thanks in advance.
