my son was born via csection and i tried to exclusively breast feed him but he mauled my nipples and it hurt too much so i supplemented w/ formula. when we got home and i healed i tried to nurse and he would switch nicely from my nipple to a bottle nipple but he was always hungry like 1/2 an hour after feeding on me so i continued to supplement with formula and then i stopped being able to produce enough milk (when pumping i would get about an ounce (sometimes less) from both breasts together) so i just gave up and put him on formula only.
its not 3 weeks later and i decided to try to express some milk myself (with forefinger and thumb) and saw a drop come out. i got all excited and decided to pump to see how much, if anything, comes out and ... zilp. not a drop. i tried pumping for 15 minutes.
obviously i have something left inside of me. when i try to express with my fingers i get a drop or two but the pump gets nothing.
is it possible for me to go back to breastfeeding? any advice on how to do it???
