I've been breastfeeding my baby for the first two months and i had oversupply i was always engorged but then I got a breast infection - and ever since I noticed a lowered milk supply - i didnt know my supply was low but my baby started fussing and crying after a min or less on the breast but would drink a bottle so i just concluded that she wasnt getting enough so i tried pumping but nothing came out ! less then 10 mls ... although before tht if i wd pump id get up tp 4 oz (between feedings)
I had to supplement with formula .. even up tp 4 times aday! but I really really really wana go back to bf !! I'm taking fenugreek supplements tht contain 400mg fenugreek oil, 15 mg fennel oil, 15 mg caraway oil .. i take 5 tab 3 x daily ... for almost a week now... the supply increase is loww but i'm trying my best to feed her every 2 hrs but even if she does feed .. the max is 5 mins on the breast and always comes off crying and fussing ... after i feed her nothing wd come on the pump too...why is she fussy? no milk? is thefenugreek dose too low? could there be a problem with my pump? are there like sizes? is there anything else i cd take or do? is it possible for me to exclusively bf again?
sorry for such a long post but ur site is really helpful and i wish to find some solutions aswell ... THANK YOU
