ok here is my story...
At my daughters one week appointment she was over the normal weight loss, and it concerned the Doctor. I was given formula and a prescription for metoclopram to be taken 3 times a daily. I went home and did as Doctor instructed and I had a much happier baby and she gained 7 oz. over the weekend. Doctor and I both were happy. I was a little upset I had to give her formula but happy she was growing and not as cranky. Then we moved cross country and once we met with our Doctor here I was made to feel like I failed. The Doctor suggested I stop the formula and try pumping more. I was ready to throw in the towel, but thought I had not tried EVERYTHING yet. I go home try fenugreek, pump more often, and drown myself with water. When I do pump I get NOTHING! The only time I've ever gotten anything of substance is two hours while she is sleeping, but that is less then .5 of an oz. So my question is has anyone ever experienced this? Is there something I'm not doing to help me produce more?
