This kind of goes along with my other post about mastitas and nipples being sore but I am also worried I am not producing enough milk. I have a 4 week old and was exclusivly nursing but found out last week I have mastitas. I had a fever, flu like symptoms and it hurt so bad to nurse and the dr. said keep nursing/ pumping and my supply may go down. I began to pump because I cried everytime my daughter wanted to eat because it hurt, I noticed I only got 2 oz out, in the morning I might get 3.5. I called the lactation department at the hospital and they said to take fenugreek, I thought it was helping, but now I am not sure. I was able to store up enough for two bottles inbetween trying to nurse again, it just hurts so bad still, but my daughter is drinking it faster then I can produce, and I need some on hand for this weekend. I have tried drinking more water, fenugreek and watched the video that was posted on how to produced more and nothing is helping. My daughter always seems to not get enough and I hate that I am considering formula every once and awhile. I want to be my daughters supply, I want that bond, I have only enjoyed it for 4 weeks. But I feel so helpless when she is crying for food and I cant give her anything, I feel like an awful mom.
