When my first daughter was born, I was the very definition of young, stupid, and clueless. I was afraid my daughter wasn't getting enough milk and started pumping (she was three whole days old). I wasn't able to get a lot, obviously, but I believed that this meant I would never be able to produce milk and started strictly formula feeding. When I became pregnant with my second daughter, I was determined to breastfeed. The first two weeks went smoothely, then I developed mastitis. I thought I was going to die. With the pressures of a newborn, no sleep, and a not-so-happy-with-the-new-baby toddler, I gave up and decided to stop breastfeeding. For the next two weeks, I went on a pumping schedule and took birth control pills to decrease my supply. I was terrified that if I kept nursing, I might get mastitis again. My daughter was 4 1/2 weeks old when I completely stopped breastfeeding/pumping. She is now 10 weeks old and I have decided to start breastfeeding again. It is just so beneficial for babies and on top of that, formula is so expensive! I am still able to hand express a few drops, so I'm quite hopeful. I've started by having a much skin to skin time as possible with her and bringing her to the breast whenever she needs comfort instead of using her pacifier. Not gonna lie, she isn't a huge fan. She will latch on for a few seconds and suckle, then get angry and scream. But I figure that even that is better than nothing. I'm also pumping every time that she takes a bottle (about every 3 1/2 hours.) I'm considering taking fenugreek (sp?), but am not sure about its effectiveness. Does this sound like a good plan? Are there any other things I should be doing? I'll take all of the advice I can get!
