Expressing for a dreamfeed
Posted 19 September 2008 - 11:39 AM
But he seems to fall asleep and not suck anymore on the (.) (.)....however with a bottle of EBM he drinks the whole lot and my (.) (.) are ever so thankful that they get emptied when I express!!!
So my question is - if I express that feed - Will it affect the my milk supply???
There are many positive reasons why I would like to continue expressing this feed..
* Hubby can give Mitch the EBM
* I get to go to bed earlier
* Mitch drinks all of the EBM and I guess would be getting more milk as he doesn't feed properly from the breast anyway!!
The only downside is yes I have to express - but that doesn't bother me at all...
Has anyone else done something similar???

I guess I could express on alternate nights...so let mitch feed from the breast one night and express the next night???
I should also mention that since expressing some of the DF's he has put on weight as well We have had some weight issues but he seems to be gaining weight nicely now
