So my journey has been rough. My baby was a VERY good nurser in the beginning, but things started to go down hill once we were home and I decided to stop nursing due to the stress of it. So I did one day and then the next day decided I wasnt done and started again. I did this another time as well about a week later. Then I thought I was getting PPD so I stopped and got engorged really bad, and decided I better do it slowly this was at 4wks pp. I do not have PPD turns out it was seperation axiety. So here we are 7 wks pp and I am only nursing a few times a day and my baby is getting formula for all feedings even when he does nurse ( nights and early mornings) and my baby will only nurse for a few mintues just enough to get through the letdown. I have not been pumping at all during the last 2 wks so my supply is low but my baby still gets a huge letdown and even chokes on it. I just went back to work yesterday and decided I wasnt ready to give up our nursing relationship. So I began to pump 3x at work and I got alittle I am also taking fenugreek and mother milk tea now. I am praying that I can get back to nursing my baby but I fear it is too late because he has now started to fight the breast. I keep telling myself that since he will still latch and drink through a letdown that maybe once my milk is back in full that he will be able to get more satisfied and want to nurse more. I reall really want this and dont have much support since I have gone back and forth so much that my husband and family are ready for me to be done and just formula feed. They do not like seeing me get upset if breastfeeding doesnt work out right and they are tired of hearing me talk about it...So my questions are;
Is it too late?
Can I get my full milk supply back even though I have not been nursing but a few minutes a few times a day?
Will my baby nurse from me again fulltime?
