I am currently breastfeeding my 5mo old baby boy. I am back at work and I can only pump about half of what he consumes. He refuses all formula, and gets really upset. We tried all brands. We tried mixing together. By days end he is cranky and nurses on me all night. I have tried fengugreek, I have tried oatmeal, drinking tons of water nothing increases my supply. Weekends we have no issue if he is nursing.
I met a gal that has a 3 month old she is breastfeeding. She "says" she has no health issues, and does not do drugs or drink. She has an abundance of milk and gave me some frozen milk. She said she can continue to give me some extra milk if needed.
1. Is this ok to do? has anyone done it?
2. Is there some place to get the milk tested before i give it to my baby?
Any help is appreciated
