I am a 2nd time mom and I had supply issues with my 1st (or at least thats what I assumed at the time). Im afraid i may be having the same struggles with this one too:( my daughter is now 3weeks old. I thought I was doing ok until I took her in for a weight check today and she only gained an ounce in a week. Shes been pooping and peeing just fine (was only pooping every couple days for the 1st 2 weeks but in the last couple days started pooping more frequently) ive been drinking that mothers milk tea and taking go lacta vitamins (things I also did w my 1st child). I seem to be getting more when I pump after feedings than I did w my 1st but I could be wrong. Im just looking for any suggestions or support from anyone that has maybe experienced the same problems. I just feel like im starving her and it makes me feel like a failure. I really want to exclusively breastfeed but I need to do what's best for my daughter so she starts gaining more weight. Please help!!
