My baby is almost 3 weeks old.....
In the hospital she lost more than her 10% so I had to give her supplement.
I attempted breastfeeding minutes after delivery.
I saw a lactation consultant in-patient with every feeding during the day.
I have seen a lactation consultant out-patient.
I feed her at least every 3h if not sooner (on demand).
I am not pumping anymore after the advice of the OP lactation consultant so that milk can build up between feedings.
I am taking 7g of Fenugreek, eating lactation cookies 2x/day, and taking Lactuca virosa (unsure of dose) 4x/day.
I am still not satisfying her and having to supplement almost an ounce every feeding.
There are no latch issues.
I have PCOS and hypothyroid.
I want to strickly breastfeed but am so disheartened and cannot see my baby cry and be miserable anymore without supplement......
