My son is now 6 weeks old and I think I just gave up on BF altogether but I really don't want to....I am frustrated and disheartened. When I gave birth they took him and I didn't see him for a few hours even thought I told them I wanted to BF exclusively. My son wouldn't latch on and wouldn't even take the bottle at first and so I told them to keep trying with bottle and slowly he took to the bottle. He wasn't latching on and I wasn't producing milk. I didn't even get him the colostrum as the hospital was not helpful ( I delivered Labor Day weekend and it seemed like I was an inconvenience). My son was Jaundice and so the pediatrician said snot to BF until he was cleared which was when he was 10 days old. In the meantime I pumped and started getting somewhere was up to about 4 oz per session. Once I got the clearing was hard bc he would latch on bc he was used to bottle feeding so I got a nipple shield and we had take off. However, it felt like my supply dwindled and he would fuss bc he wasn't getting enough and it was so painful. He would nurse for almost 2 hours, sleep for 29 minutes and want more but I was too sore so I started supplementing with formula during some feedings surfing the day and all feedings during the night. My supply is shot....I started taking Fenugreek and Blessed thistle pills, started drinking more water, no caffeine and made sure to eat (which is possibly the hardest of all the things) but still nothing. I had a few feedings that were awesome but more often then none he was screaming at me til I wanted to cry. Even when I pump I would only get about 2oz and now it's even less than that. I don't leak anymore, my boobs don't get engorged, they aren't hard. I just gave up yesterday....I didn't attempt to BF but I'm so sad about it.I hate quitting at anything and i feel like i quit on my son Today he is having issues with his Bowel Movements which was happening before when I wasn't BF and I feel like it got better once I was BF. So now I am motivated by his bowel issues to try again. Is it too late or can I get my supply back? And if so HOW? Should I just start pumping every hour until its back up?
