I had my beautiful baby boy 9 weeks before my due date. It was crash cart emergency c-section. Overall he's doing great. I'm very determined to breast feed and have him be a healthy striving baby (which he is so far per feeding tube). I have to pump and nuzzle due to the fact he's so little. However I'm starting to get frusterated with my 'supply'. I've been taking Fenugreek, massage, healthy diet, beer (yes beer, per Nurse Practioner), cranberry juice, and plenty of water. I'm trying to stay stress free cause of the 'supply' and because of the fact he's in the NICU. Any mom's have anymore suggestions or advice to give? I have a lactation consult on Monday but everytime I pump I'm on the verge of tears.
