Avoiding foremilk, hindmilk imbalance while pumping
My 10 week old is eating 48 oz a day and I think it's because of this foremilk/hindmilk imbalance. He can't be satisfied and he wants more! He is supposed to have 32 oz max daily for his weight but I pump exclusively for him due to latch problems, he was premature. Do you have any tips for how to prevent overfeeding foremilk when pumping? The more empty my breasts are the higher the fat content of my milk correct? Should I pump & dump some of the foremilk? Is it better to pump every 3 or 6 hours? Hes been so colicky. I have been overfilling his tummy with the first 3 oz off each breast combined in six oz bottle 8 times a day! He makes plenty of pee and poop as that is supposedly the indicator that he's getting enough, clearly not the case! I'm a nurse and this is my third child! Your information about imbalance makes perfect sense but it's news to me!
