I have been expressing very efficiently and well since my baby was 2 weeks old, knowing that I was going to be working from 12 weeks - we wanted her to take EBM from a bottle when I was missing a feed.
However, she is now 9.5mths. Having 3 feeds per 24hrs, which seem to have excellent supply. But I am simply unable to get anything like the expressed amounts I used to get. I'm down from 4/5 oz per expression to 2oz if I'm lucky. This is difficult as my DD has a CMPA, so I've been using EBM on her cereal etc. The dietician supplied me with Nutramigen, which I am fairly certain DD detests as every time I've put it on her cereal (I've not given it to her as a "milk drink", using my stored EBM) she refuses to eat it.
Is this is a sign that expressing is no longer going to be possible? I'm absolutely gutted as I have been doing at the same time each day, using the same equipment etc. I know expressing isn't an accurate sign of supply - and as DD is sated after each BF, it would seem the supply is fine.
Is there anything else I can do? I expect I will have to find a formula she likes to feed her when I'm missing feeds and I run out of my stored EBM. But I'd like to be able to leave it for her.
