When my son was born, he had Unilateral incomplete cleft lip. The nurse took him away from me soon after for further examination and i don't make early initiation breastfeeding. Later i come home, i breastpumping and feeding him with a bottle. Now the problem come up, i got sick and had to drink the medicine. My milk pretty much dried up after that. Then i started to figure it out, at first i was trying to breastfeeding him, it was so hard, first because my nipple is to short and second i bet he had nipple confusing. Then i tried to get breast pumping again but the result was not quiet good.. it only about 5ml - 20ml for an hour and then it stopped.
My son is 7 weeks old by now and i forced to give him formula. But i'm still hoping that i can breastfeeding him or back to breast pumping again.
So, what should i do to increase the milk supply for my breast? somebody help me..
