    Default Help! I have a 3 month 3 week old baby..Need your help!


    Hi, when my son Landen was born, he was 8.13 lbs & they wouldn't let me nurse him right away. ( I had to have an emg. c-section) I got to about 4 hours after he was born & he had trouble latching on. Now, He is almost 4 months, he will be Dec 24 He is growing like a weed! I have been supp formula since he was 2 months b/c I couldn't keep up with him. This past week, I decided that I wanted to stop bf. Well, i have thought about it, & decided I want to start back up again. I pumped today & only a few drops came out. I have regan to take & thought about Fenugreek, is it possible to get my supply back? I am off work all next week & I am willing to stay home & do nothing but nurse & pump. I have a Medela pump. It's just a bummer. I am working two jobs & go to college tues & thurs morning. The dad is a waste! But I love my son more then anything & want to give him what's best. Does anyone have any advice?? Thank you!
