Can anyone help me i have just had 2 beautiful twin boyswho were taken by c-section at 34 weeks and they spent 12 days in the NICU I started pumping as soon as possible but nothing happened. The LC at the hostital told me after 7 days I should give up, I couldn't after all I have two older girls who were breastfeed exclusively w/ no problems at all actually I think I could have feed an army then. When my boys came home I was holding one of them and I leaked milk so I knew if I just kept pumping I would get more. Well now its been 16 days since my boys birth pumping every 3 hours the most I have gotten at once is 30ml. I am eating right, drinking gallon of water every day,and getting lots of rest. Also my doctors will not give me the meds. to help increase because I have a history w/ depression and thats one of side effects. What can I do to help ? bf has always been important to me I have done it before w/ no problems why is this happening? should I give up ? I am ok w/ knowing my boys will probably never accept my breastbut I can't accept that they won't get the very best food.
