My DD is just about a week old and I just started using the lact-aid. Due to PCOS I have really low supply and after all the pain and anguish I went through with my first 2 kids with trying to breast/bottle feed, this time I decided to try the Lact-aid. Even though I am still getting the hang of it, so far I quite like it. I've never had a content baby at the breast with sustained sucking, and that has been amazing!
I expect to have to always supplement and am ok with that, and so far I have been supplementing at every feeding.
Anyway, I have a question:
As the baby gets older and needs more supplement, does the lact-aid get faster to empty? Currently, it seems the speed at which my baby drains the bag, depends on how well I positioned the tube and the latch. If I do it well, then I think she finishes 1.5 oz in 10-15 min?? (not sure) Do any of you who use Lact-Aid supplement more than 4-5 oz at a feed? How long does it take for your baby to drain the bag?
Any tips to get optimal flow/drainage?
