Re: no breast milk despite all efforts
Your breastfeeding glitches could have multiple causes.
However, it would be helpful if the lactation consultants who are confounded offered some explanation.
although the issue of relactation and infant suck retraining is not what you asked information about , that avenue is open,
i have been told that certain health factors impact a mothers ability initially make milk.
1. Loss of a significant amount of blood during/after delivery
2. retained placenta fragments
3. Never experiencing breastmilk coming in during first week. if mother never has that early hormonal first milk production that could indicate other factors are impacting ability to make milk
a. insufficient glandular tissue
b. breast injury
c. breast surgery
4. Milk production depends on stimulating the breasts to produce milk every 2 hours around the clock. Hospital grade rental pump and hand expression to finish off the pumping session.
