Our relactation journey is not going well and I could do with some advice. I have been offering the breast often and my DS has latched on once or twice however in the main he gets fretful and tearful and refuses to latch. I am trying to make the breast a happy place to be and have focussed on lots of skin to skin, cuddles etc but he is reluctant to latch.
When he does latch he wrinkles his nose and looks unhappy as if the milk tastes unpleasant and I have read that often at the start of relactating that milk can be salty. I have been taking fenugreek and expressing often although only getting a few drips at a time.
I really want this to happen and I am worried about making a mistake and ruining our chances. Do you think I should get a hops pump to get my supply up while still offering so that when he does latch on he is getting more milk and may then latch on more?
