What am I doing wrong?

  • I've been breastfeeding since my baby was born in april and can never pump more than 4 oz in a sitting. I pump or she nurses every 2 hours until empty. Any advice? I'm beating myself up about this :/

  • Since your child has born in April, then you have to continue breastfeeding up to six months. I would personally advise you to first feed yourself then feed your baby. Our body takes time for breast feeding.So it's advisable to eat something in 1 or 2 hours.

  • You don't need to worry about how much milk your pumping out if you're exclusively bf as long as baby is thriving. I used to bf my lo and when he was done eating pump for 15-20 mins to stimulate more milk supply. Worked for me! Hope this helps!

  • Hi, better eat more leafy vegetables because it will help you produce more milk and do not drink anything that has caffeine because it can dry out your milk. I hope this helps, good luck.
