I am posting here to actually help my best friend. Being a mom of twins and having breastfed them, I know it can be very frustrating but I told here someone has to have an idea on what to do. So here I am.
My friend just had baby #4 (last week)and has BF alll her children but this one is the most challenging. Her little girl was born with Downs Syndrome. She is still in the hospital and is having some latching issues. So my friend is pumping every 2 hrs when she is away from her but she only gets 1oz on each side. She said she isn't having any let down at all. She isn't engorged yet but her breast are very full. She has had probelms before with no let down but it would resolve on its own eventually. But she never had to pump either and her other kids were healthy.
She has spoken to a # of Lactation Consultants and nobody seems to know what to do. SHe has tried all the relaxing things, heat, massage, etc and it doesn't help. She is so upset (which doesn't help) more so about the let down then the DS itself. I just want to help anyway I can and since she is so busy I thought I would try here. I also emailed our local LLL but I haven't recieved anything back yet.
If anyone has any input, please let me know.
