Baby J is back to gaining weight and we're back to changing diapers like an assembly line but only because of the formula.
It seems like the only thing I do is pump and nurse but I can only produce a few drops from one boob and nothing at all from the other. J gets fuzzy and angry when we nurse since nothing comes out and when I get him to latch he falls asleep after a few minutes of no success.
Our lactation consultant gave me a breast massage routine and green leaf diet. I'm drinking as much water and tea as I can tolerate. My day revolves around pumping. And yet, nothing.
Lactation consultant suspects that J is beginning to reject the boob because of the bottle and strongly adviced me to go easy on the formula, but he isn't getting any food from me and I'm afraid of limiting the bottle and make him go hungry like he was a week ago.
This is a strange place for me. The other baby I nursed without a problem. I thought we would have a smooth ride this time around too,but even if we faced some difficulties I didn't anticipate this much frustration and struggle. Poor J.
