I have some trouble with my milk supply. I have been experiencing nipple pain in my right breast and it got to the point that I could not even pump. I was hand expressing. It was cracked open and bleeding at times. Ouch!. My problem is this: because of this I have not been offered my right breast to my LO for a couple of week now. My left is working great and because I can not hand express enough from the right one my supply is very-very low. My nipple seemed to heal, so I offered my right breast today to her, and it kind of cracked again and she seemed like she doesn't know how to latch on properly and I could not hear her swallow and ever since my pain started I don't feel any letdown.
Should I consider taking fenugreek? I really don't want to stop or give up on BF. although there has been some other times when I thought I would, but I don't know how much longer I can handle the pain. I will do anything to get my supply back.
I need some advices, because this matter is always on the back of my mind.
