please don't worry about what others say .I have a 3 month old as well and I am starting work next week and already filled up my freezer with milk .
I eat everything and try to include garlic and ginger in my diet and avoid gassy foods .Now after 3 months my DS is doing better with the gas .even he spits up i don't worry I still nurse him .another key thing to avoid gas is don't stay hungry for too long .empty stomach tends to make you gassy
I know its little hard and I was in the same boat as you but its the best for the baby and he/she will thank you for their rest of their lives for healthy body that you gave them
It does get easier. You will still have some soreness off and on but it does get better. My son is 6 months old and I exclusively pump now and there are times that if I forget or even when I don't forget to use "nipple butter" (lanolin made it worse) I will get cracks sometimes that hurt quite a bit. I push through it though. Carson is also a gas machine. Stinky little man at that. lol. Some babies are just gassy as I have come to realize. Are you using a single or double pump and how often? These two things can also make a difference in supply. Also stay hydrated, if you are dehydrated your milk supply will lessen.
