Lowest of the Low supply

Megan - posted on 07/02/2016 ( 1 mom has responded )




I have 3mo daughter who I really wanted to breastfeed. Unfortunately, due to some crappy circumstances she never got latched properly and now flat out screams when she sees my breasts. I re-directed to try exclusive pumping, but I have only been able to get about 2.5 oz after an entire day of pumping. She's been supplemented since she was about 3 days old. I've tried changing my pumping schedule, pumping more frequently, diet and exercise changes and just about every type of herbal supplement and have never increased. It's extremely frustrating.

I'm not sure if suggestions or support would help me, but I'm putting myself out there because I rarely see anyone with as low of a supply as me and I want other moms to know that sometimes we just got dealt a crummy hand.
