Just a quick update about the Medela SNS (the commercial version), which just arrived today. I boiled the parts as recommended and used it with breast milk, it worked very well. What is nice about it is that I can hang it around my neck and the tube can be taped in place, so it leaves my hands free (except for the hand that i use to hold Emma with). The tubing is thinner than the 5 French so it takes longer to take in the same volume, which is a little time consuming and makes Emma fall asleep on the job. Then she wakes up hungry, and today twice I gave up and used the bottle to finish the feeding, as it was taking almost two hours to feed her and I got tired myself. I think tomorrow I will try the thicker tubing in the evenings, as she is more tired and is just taking forever to eat.
I don't know exactly if this is worth the time and effort, especially since she takes both the breast and the bottle very easily. But I will persist with it. I also don't know if my milk production has increased at all, since she is still taking sometimes 3 oz of supplement, which is almost a whole feed. But I have to keep trying. All I can say is that I am glad I don't have a full time job.
