m running out of stock for my ebm. hannah now needs 12 - 15oz from 9 - 5. 3oz per feed, excluding my lunch hour where i would be home to feed her twice. Then there's solid feeding in between. I was advised to stop feeding her breakfast(except fruits), since she was a bit constipated. Thus, more ebm in the morning. And also in the afternoon, since she gets very hungry from all that rolling & crawling practise.
While i, on the other hand.. Could only express not more than 8oz. Per day. That is at least a 4oz deficit per day. Yes, i am a true banker. To the bone *lol*
Anyway, just like in a bank..whatever you lose today.. You have to double the effort the next day to catch up. As money only multiplies.
So i tried expressing more today. 10:00, 14:00&17:00. Production was low & all i got was 8oz. Sigh. And all these took 1 1/2 hour of my working time. Aiyo.
I've decided to give double expressing another shot (the last time i tried, i failed miserably. Milk all over the floor, wet shirts, tears).
Sigh. The misadventures of motherhood.
