Ok ds is 23 days old. I have had big bf issues with him. Awaiting some speech therapy input to help his (rubbish) suck but carrying on with nipple shield and expressing. I have an Isis iq that's a few years old and I've never found batteries strong enough to run it out and about. Feeding rooms here in Aus don't have plugs. I am looking at getting a medela swing... Anyone used one out and about. I also find my nips get squashed in the Isis .. Better with a medela symphony so hoping the boob cup is he same.. Any idea how much ebm to offer? I currently allow him as much as he will take figuring that's what he would do at the breast and still hasn't re gained birth weight.
Hi, I fed DD1 by EBM exclusively as she wouldn't latch. Check out kellymom as there is a guide to how much EBM to give. Also there's an old thread called Expessing Clique back in 2005. Lots of good advice on that. Hope that helps
