He was born 07/03 and after my milk came in I had a wonderful supply.
But he wouldn't latch on so I pumped constantly.
When DF's mom came to visit for a few days my supply went WAY down.
I don't know if it was stress or that I rarely pumped but even then I still had a decent amount (4oz every 3-5 hours)
I've tried Mothers Milk and it helped a little.
Instead of only getting 1/4 of an oz (about 3 days ago) I can get 2 full oz all together.
Now, my question is;
Is there anything else I can do to help my supply come back up again?
I would just put baby to breast all day but he has thrush right now and I know it can be painful if he passes to me and I know it's painful for him. I'm going to put him on the breast all day as soon as his thrush is gone but is there anything I can do to help? I'm trying to pump every 1-2 hours, drinking the mothers milk, trying to drink a lot of water and juice.
I don't want to resort to full-time formula feeding.
I regret FF'ing my first and don't want to do it again.
