thanks. The lactation consultant who told me this seemed to be knowledgeable about all this, but who knows. Seems like I heard somewhere else that you need sufficient sleep to have a good milk supply. I try not to let it get me down, but I've done everything I can.
I could have pumped a lot more, but I wouldn't have had time to eat regular meals or get much anything else done. The lactation consultants at the hospital acted like I should be a pumping machine, constantly pumping away to get milk. Said I should pump 8 times during a 24 hour period, then do feedings for 20 minutes afterward. I calculated all this and I would have never gotten anything else done.
