Basically my LO is almost 7 weeks old and for lots of reasons I stopped all bfing/pumping almost a week ago. I'm having second thoughts and I want to know what it will take to get my milk back. I hate the idea of waking up in the MOTN to pump, but LO gets me up anyways, so if I need to, ok.
The problem is, LO was 10 days early and small & weak. She didnt gain weight...and we saw an LC every week for those 6 weeks. LO has a weak suck & doesn't transfer milk very well, so we did a bf-supp-pump cycle every 2.5hrs for those 6 weeks. I knew I had to go back to work this week & wouldnt be able to keep up the cycle (and i barely pump an oz) so last week I started to slip with the cycle and gave more & more formula. Then I had a much needed night out on Saturday after so many weeks sitting on the couch, and I didn't plan it but I didn't bf or pump for 15 hours
Now I'm feeling extremely guilty and I just wish I had my milk back. I'm barely pumping .25oz from one side in 20min and basically drops from the other side. can I fix this? I can pump 3 times at work (10, 12:30 & 3). I have a hands free Madela Freestyle and I'm willing to pump in my car. I work from home 3 days a week so I can pump a little extra those days. Putting baby to breast is pointless until i get my milk back, she just gets mad.
I was taking fenugreek & blessed thistle plus Mmtea. I could get Reglan but I really don't want to. I saw brewers yeast pills at walmart, should I get those to?
What do I need to do?? Is this possible??
