That's amazing! I EP'd for 6 wks w/ DD #1 and that was hard enough. I finally got her to latch on about 7 wks, she was born at 36wks and weighed 5lbs 11oz and just had a poor latch.

Re: anyone exclusively pumping?

I am exclusively pumping. I didn't plan it that way, but for now.. this is what is working. We are using the Medela Symphony pump that we are renting from the hospital. Unfortunately, I still have to supplement with formula as my supply just isn't what it should be.

I just started producing an oz of bmilk in one boob and I was so excited I took a picture!

I am glad to see that I am not alone either!

Re: anyone exclusively pumping?

Sorry you are having such difficulties, you have gotten some great advice on here so far. I have IGT so I am physically unable to produce a full supply of milk, at most my son gets an ounce per feeding. We use an at the breast supplementer, Lact Aid. I would really recommend using that to supplement the formula, that way it lessens nipple confusion and you still get stimulation during the feedings. The supplemental systems can be a pain at first, so if you ever have any questions or need support in that area, feel free to PM me. Also, have you considered taking Domperidone for your supply? There is a whole section about it on the Dr. Jack Newman website. Good luck!

I am an EPer too My guy was tongue tied and can't latch - we have an appointment today with the ENT for further evaluation.

My suppy is great and I have a nice freezer stash going - my hubby is very supportive so that helps.

We need to stick together for support mamas!
