Just some thoughts

I am a little confused about what I want to say here. I feel like other people have said everything before or better or more informed.  Mostly I complain about breastfeeding, which I love. It has just been such a struggle.  The gain this week was 3.5 ounces, which isn’t fabulous, but isn’t losing weight either.  I am continuing with the 6 ounces of half formula half breast milk in three bottles per day.  I am trying to figure out if I did something different last week vs. the week before when he gained 10 ounces. I think I may have been only offering one side in the morning and not really worrying about it if Spencer went back to sleep.  This week I am trying to make sure he takes both sides in the morning.  This is impacting how much volume I pump per day though. I have been adding two p.m. pumping sessions at about 9:30 and 11:30 to try and make up the difference, but I still only get 3-4 ounces per day in 5 sessions.  I really have no idea how to increase the pumping output.  I hope the domperidone increases my overall supply leading to a bigger output.
