My typical work day is about 10 to 6 and dd will be watched by my mom who lives close to my job. My current plan is to bf when i drop off about 930, then bf again around 2 at lunch, then again around 6 when i pick her up.
My concern is that right now she is fed on demand and i dont want to leave my mom with nothing should she get hungry. I was thinking i could pump once at night and once after i bf at lunch. I wont be able to pump any additional sessions during the work day. So the last 4 nights ive pumped around 8/ 9pm after her last feeding but i know this is when my supply is lowest and im getting less than an ounce from both breasts combined. I want to try pumping in the morning but havent figured out how to do this yet...dd is way high needs and i can barely fit in a pee break, nevermind a pumping session, ugh :/
So then i was thinking (reluctantly) maybe i should just send her to my moms with a few ounces of formula in case she gets hungry but i dont want to risk screwing up my supply.
Im really starting to panic because i dont want to go back to work to begin with and worrying about this is driving me crazy. Any advice? Anybody supplement with formula and still successfully bf the rest of the time? Bfing is very important to me, moreso than i expected going into this and i really dont want to jeopardize it, but i dont seem to be having much luck pumping. Im also leary of doing anything to drastically increase my supply because im finally getting over some awful oversupply issues.
TIA for ANY input anybody has!
