I have had many issues bf, and have seen 3 lactation consultants in the past. The last one I saw told me to stop breastfeeding if I wanted to save my nipples (bc they were constantly feeling bruised and sore from her pinching them by her suckle). I stopped breastfeeding at 7weeks and I stopped pumping over a month ago.
My daughter is now 3 months old. Today I was curious to see what she would do on my boob and I put her on it (after I fed her a bottle so she wouldn't be hungry and frustrated). She latched on (although bc of her tongue tie she still leaves my nipple looking slanted at the tip) and basically used me as a pacifier. Will this get my milk back up?
Also, what does Mother's Milk Tea taste like? Will using Fenugreek or Blessed Thistle work? I've used Fenugreek before and it had worked, but is it too late to try it again?
Can I use Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle together?
