About 3 weeks ago my daughter (then 2 weeks old) was hospitalized for viral menengitis. While in the hospital I was instructed to supplement half my feedings with formula as so the doctor can monitor her intake. After a week of that and a few more days at home of supplementing to make sure she was eating well, my milk supply has seemed to have decreased. She is never satisfied from Breastmilk alone and immediately after nursing I give her a 2 oz. bottle to keep her satisfied. I tried to eliminate all bottle feedings and strictly nurse but after about 2 days of that my breasts were EXtremely tender, my nipples were cracked, and after about 10-15 minutes of nursing I felt a bad burning and "pulling" sensation deep inside my breast. Needless to say my LO was hungry again only 20-30 minutes after her last nursing session.
I am thinking about getting that shot to boost my supply back up? Has anyone ever had it? What are your experiences with it? Has anyone ever had this problem before?????? NEED HELP!
