So, we had the tongue-tie clipped about a month ago. I had a fifth bout of mastitis about a week or so after that (missed tickets to a show and everything, boo) and treated it with a ten-day course of Bactrim. Doc gave me a one-time dose of Fluconazole/Diflucan to eliminate any possible yeast overgrowth from the heavy antibiotics, and I hope that helps us. My supply just feels so, so low these days and my son is wanting to nurse all the time! I know it's his way of building my supply back up, but I do get very sore by the end of the day...
The last few weeks, I think he's been going through a growth spurt again. I can always tell by the fingernails! We put him to bed around 7pm and about 1/3 of the time, he wants to nurse again at 10 before he sleeps through the night. So, I hadn't been pumping in the evening because I didn't want to be so sore when he woke to nurse. But then he didn't want to nurse at 10, and slept through just fine! So I wake up in a puddle, just sitting there thinking, all my precious milk! All over my sheets! Grr!
Ladies, what should I be doing now, in terms of pumping, supply building, etc? I still get my daily vasospasms and he is nursing so frequently... I used to be able to pump more and now I just barely get a few drops, and I am nervous because my stash is basically down to 20 oz.
What would you do? I've been through the wringer and I am completely bereft of ideas at this point.
