Hi, I've been having salty breastmilk, ever since it was week 2 coming in week 3. I have heard that this is a signal of low supply?
I've actually supplemented LO with formula since day 5 (because some say my baby wasnt drinking anything out of my breasts and afraid that he'd loose more weight/get jaundice). Been a tough 5 week.. Week 2 I met an LC about trying to bf exclusively and she suggested i cut out formula completely. I tried and basically didn't slee for 24 hours and baby only peed twice - didn't think it was healthy so I continued again with the formula while trying to breastfeed as well.
In week 4 I still see no supply improvement and baby started to reject breast (most probably nipple confusion). So after all the frustrations, i met an LC at my hospital a week ago and she suggested relactation (due to the seldom breastfeeding) with a Medela supplemental nursing system to boost my supply. A week on, I could still only get 2.5 teaspoons of milk after pumping and milk is still salty.. Is there something wrong?
Btw, I have always been flatchested and during/after pregnancy size of breasts remain unchanged, with the left breast slightly more full/round than the right.. Help anyone?
