Hi Ladies firstly a big thank you o all the lovely ladies in this forum for being so supportive..i've gotten thru 6 weeks of EBF reading through the forum everytime i had a problem.
My issue now is i'm worried i'm not making enough milk anymore for baby. Initially i had an oversupply issue and recurrent blocked ducts (almost once a week) the last being a few days ago. after the last episode i have noticed by breast don't fill up as fast anymore. Baby wakes up 2 times to feed at night..but he sort of has a short snack and then sleeps off. During the day he cluster feeds whenever he's a awake (every 20 mins) say from 9 am to noon then 5 to 8pm. each time feeding for about 5 mins only. Before this he was fairly regularly feeding 2 hourly with a little cluster feed in the evening. He has enough of wet diapers and poo's only once in 2 -3 days. Weight gain good so far.
What should I do to make him have a fairly regular 2-3 houry feed. i't so frustrating..i can't go out anywhere( havent left the house in 6 weeks!
Should i start galactagouges? should i be pumping to increase my supply? when i empty out my breast after feeding it takes forever to refill and DS will be constantly attached to the breast for the next few hours.
What should i do?
