Re: What do I do!?! I'm desperate.
Just an update....
Upped the fenugreek to 5 capsules 3x's a day still only a faint maple odor. Power pumped both evenings. Pumped after each feeding. Got up and pumped at 2am both nights. He ate ALL day yesterday. (I'm so sore)
I gave LO whatever I pumped as a supplement if he seemed like he REALLY needed it. Then pumped about 15 min if I had to supplement. He seemed to actually be doing fine. I only had to give him an oz like twice. His output was on the lower end of the spectrum 4 not too wet diapers from about 9a-11p and one poo, but he seemed content.
So far back at work, I've gotten even less than the other day, 2.5oz in 4hrs.:cry I'm SICK of oatmeal, poping 30+ pills a day, water, pumping and stressing. I feel like I'm failing. I may just be one of those moms who has to supplement a little. I had to with my DD but she was extremely sick (needed a liver transplant) and required more calories than I could provide. (The Dr. actually told me to stop BF all together but I ignored them and supplemented when necessary). I WON'T quit but I may have no other choice than to supplement while I'm at work. :cry
I've ordered Shatavari and am going to start researching Goat's Rue. GAH, I'm really envious of mom's who can provide enough for their babies. You are SO fortunate. I already don't really care for nursing, this is making it even harder.
