Re: Please help!!!
hi mama, it sounds like you've been going through a really rough time! congratulations on your new little one.
PP is right: the best way to increase milk is by draining the breast, regularly and completely. herbs & rx are helpful for some people, but you've got to put the demand on the breast in order for them to do any good. tell us about your pumping routine: how often, how long, what pump, is it new, how much you're getting, how much you're supplementing with formula, any other details you can think of, and we'll help you get on track!
you might also tell us more about why your OB doesn't want to prescribe it, as there might be details helpful for us to know.
tell us about your daughter's latching problems, too, and whether she has ever nursed at the breast, and whether you've had any help figuring out the issues.
