I am so glad I found this site and so many people here that could help me.
My DD (almost 10 months) has been fully weaned now for 2 months. She stopped exclusive breast feeding and started supplements when she was only about 4 months old. Currently, she nurses only when she is almost ready to fall asleep (that too only at nights). My milk supply has dropped to a few drops at a time.
The thing is, she's been falling sick CONSTANTLY ever since she was fully weaned. I want to take up breast feeding again, increasing my milk supply to exclusive breastfeeding levels, to give her an "immunity boost". Is this possible after a gap of almost 6 months? I would be glad to even go back to supplemented levels of 2 months ago, for a start.
I began taking fenugreek supplements and encouraging her to suckle more, but haven't seen enough increase to get her on breast milk exclusively. How long does it take before the fenugreek boosts milk supply? Are there any medications that would help?
Please, any suggestions would help.
