This may be dumb but I don't know if my milk has "come in yet."
DS is 11 days old. We had some latching issues and for a few days he didn't nurse well and I pumped and supplemented (rec by pedi because of wait loss). Basically he latched okay for the 4 days we were in the hospital, had a rough 3-4 days with minimal latching and now has been taking the breast better. There was a whole day where he didn't latch and I didn't have a pump, when it came in the mail the next day I started pumping about every 3 hours. When I pump I only get 1/2 oz. I pump after feedings as well to make sure my breasts are empty and I still get about 1/2oz.
In all this time I never felt like my milk came in, it seems like a lot of people say you know when it comes, but I don't. After 11 days I feel like it must have, so maybe I have a low supply?? Did my supply get ruined from those few days of poor latching?
Has anyone's milk come in this late?
The LC said that if a woman gets more that 2.5 L of IV fluid it could make milk come in late, I got almost 6 L of fluid in the hospital. Has anyone heard of this? I am trying to do research but coming up pretty empty.
I know supplementing is not good for supply, but I only supplement after a feeding and still pump regularly.
I just learned about power pumping and I am thinking about trying that this evening, has this worked for anyone?
