My friend had a preemie baby, due to alot of medication she is on she can't breastfeed, we was talking one night while we was at the hospital and we came to the conclusion that I should relactate to supply the baby breastmilk instead of her having formula.
I bought a Medela PIS Advance 3 days ago and have been pumping every few hours or so, I was just wondering if there is anyone out there that can give me some advice on how I can start to relactate sooner then later?? I would like to keep it medication free, I am open to herbs or things in that nature, but I have read so many things about the prescribed medication and I would like to stay away from that..
I appreciate any advice I can get, I would love to start building my milk supply sooner then later so I can start giving the precious some milk instead of formula.
It is not possible for me to have precious suckle as she is incubated and not to be out of the incubator. I will do what I need to do as long as it does not include her suckling as that is just not possible.
Please any advice would be great.
**Also on a side not what is the best cream for sore nipples? Mine are SOOOO sore from pumping, but I can't take a break from it as I need the milk sooner then later.
Thank you soo much in advance.
