Asperating Child, help

Amber Rene - posted on 12/24/2015 ( 2 moms have responded )




I'm a mom of 3 boys. Just had my last one at the begging of December. The Dr. diagnosed my baby as a silent aspirator. I can no longer breastfeed him :( I am however pumping and mixing it with a thickner they gave me. My milk is slowing down and I don't know how to help it come back in more. I use to pump out atleast 6 to 8 oz but can only get 3 to 4 oz total. PLEASE HELP!

Lots of skin to skin even if baby is not nursing. There are prescription medications that can help, so talk to your doctor. Stay hydrated and pump more often for shorter times.
