Hi! I am having some trouble with breastfeeding and are starting to pull my hear out!
My little angel in now 15 ½ weeks old! She latch on properly, but is a sleepy baby ! She drinks well I just keep wakening her up! She drinks 2 x 5 min each side! She drink at 8:00, 12:00, 16:00 and 19:00 every day, then goes to bed at 20:00 for the night! Apart form the 19:00 meal I need to wake her up for the rest of the times! For the past two week I have been having problems with my 19:00 feed as there is just not enough milk, I need to defreeze breast milk so she that she has enough! And for the last two day it is been happening with all the meals! She will eat 5min each side no problem but the other 5 min is the problem she will eat 1 tot 4 min and start to complain that my breast is empty! And if I do like if I am expressing milk there is only coming out a drop or two!
I am drinking 2 litre of liquids a day ( milk, water or juice) plus 3 cups of coffee in the morning to get me started! Eat three meals a day, I just try to stay away for sweets and chips!
Do you have any idea as I would like to feed my little till at least 1 year old!
