I'm new here - a second time Mum and had no BF problems with my first child.
My second child, now a 5 week boy was born 10lbs, and had a few feeding problems due to "wet lung" after aspirating water from his Water Birth. After IV antibiotics, he is better but had silent reflux (I think due to the antibiotics) and is now on a prescription of Gaviscon for Infants. I have to express twice a day and mix with the powder which I administer via a bottle.
I have noticed since doing this that my supply has gone from over-active (in the first 3 weeks) to really diminished from about 5pm-10pm. Yesterday, my boy was demand feeding every hour between those times and I was rendered totally exhausted with a really sore right nipple (my right breast seems to be the least productive).
I'm wondering what I should do - should I take some Fenugreek to help boost my supply ? I have to continue with the Gaviscon for another 2 weeks so have to still do the pumping in order to mix up the powder.
I adore breastfeeding and really don't want to have to stop !
