slow nursing

As I mentioned on Sunday Emily is not yet strong enough to get very much milk at the breast. Even with the nursing supplementer which delivers additional milk through a tube taped to the breast she is only getting about 5-10 ml from the supplementer in 20 minutes. Today the nurse on duty had lots of personal experience using the supplementer and gave me some tips about how to tape it and to use both tubes instead of one and to use the large diameter tubes for a faster flow. She got 10 ml in 7 minutes.
