I am almost 25 weeks pregnant with my second child.
With my first, I ended up having an emergency c-section which resulted in an infection. I was on antibiotics, I.v treatments, for two weeks and after that dilemma my milk production wasn't enough, and my son had already adjusted to the bottle.
I was able to breast feed him for the first two days, but I still had issues with latching. After the first day I was bleeding, sore, cracked, and in agonizing pain.
I don't want my previous experience with breast feeding affect how I feel about breast feeding my new baby.
Is there anything I can do now (other than basic reading, and research) to help improve my chances of breast feeding? I was reading somewhere about Fenugreek root, or capsules to help stimulate the sweat glands and milk supply.
Is there anything else I can do? Massages or food options, vitamins.. Anything?
