I have a month old baby and havent latched on from day 1. We visited lactation consultant and tried latching the baby with nipple shield. It takes around 20. Mins to make him latch even with nipple shield and then he dozes off.. I keep waking him up and he nurses around 30 mins on both breasts. He dint gain weight and the pediatrician suggested to supplement him along with pumped bm.. I hardly get around 1.5 - 2 ounces during each pump and the flow is very slow that i pump from 40 - 50 mins each time. Am taking fenugreek capsule 1 each 3 times a day.. My diet has fish, garlic, oatmeal 3-4 times a week.. Pls advice how to increase milk supply.
