This is all very frustrating. First I had thrush, then LO would not tolerate OALD issues, now I don't have enough milk! I am at my wits end yet again.
Okay, so I'm trying to pump after every feeding because I'm not producing enough to satisfy DS. He usually detaches when no more will come out and screams and cries, refusing to latch again. DH usually cup feeds him while I pump...
The question is, how long do I pump for?? 10-15 minutes? And how long do I have to do this until I see improvement?? Should I take fenugreek?
For the past 3 days it has gotten progressively worse. At first he was only upset at the last feeding of the night, so I solved that by offering both sides (I didn't do this until all this started happening, I was used to just one side per feeding). Yesterday he was upset at the last 2 feedings. Tonight it's worse, it has started with the 3rd to last feeding. This is so upsetting, I was just telling people that DS and I had finally found our groove and I wanted to BF much longer than I had originally planned. And now this! I am so exasperated... do you think it's over? I really want to BF longer, DS is only 2.5 months! Please help!
