That said, this is the result of feeding very often and pumping after all or almost all sessions, then feeding S. the pumped milk within 24 hours. We're now trying to stretch out his pattern a bit, which he is totally up for -- it is HARD to get him to eat every two hours. It just remains to be seen whether my boobs can maintain their supply with more time between feedings and pumping sessions.
My goal now is to get him to one month (2/21) on my milk alone. If I need to supplement with donor milk or formula at that point, then so be it. I have an Internet friend who is going to send me 100-200 oz. of her excess milk, so that will be nice to have. So.ren keeps bringing home germs, and my main concern is to get Se.bastian through these first six to eight weeks with the best health possible.
