@Gelati: I don't know how many times I have to say that I am jealous!!! I thought if I feed bub a bit more tonight, he would sleep longer. Nope. Still on the 3hrs schedule, 1.5hr Max sleep. He is restless with overnight feed because somehow the gas is more severe in these hrs. After 8w, I realised that I can't help so just have to let him grunt. :"( Earplug doesn't work anymore so restless sleep for me too. He used to be able to sleep for 3hrs (the max he ever did) but the feeding schedule was quite irregular back then and more often.
Yes, that's certainly true for drug. I was doing boot camp early on (day and night!) and with fenugreek. My mom cooked all sort of things to help but I still wasn't producing enough to feed DS Why?! Because we were over feeding bub! Poor little guy was gulping 120ml! Wrong teat too. He was confused about hunger and reflux so did we. It took us a while to realise the problem. If he increased his intake slowly, things would have been different. Jumping from 60ml to 120ml is a lot. Only now at 9w, we r feeding him 120ml only if he wants.
My friend did exactly just that (like minib), refused to top up to keep up the supply. I didn't because it was from the start that he needed it for glucose balance and mild jaundice. Personal choice too regarding top up or not.
Oh...I used to keep Bub on the boobs for an hr and then top up + pump but lactation consultant told me that that's counter productive if you want any sleep at all. 30mins max unless you have just enough to get by. Then frequent feeding is fine. You ladies are so determined and sure will pay off.
