I'm looking for help and hope I've come to the right place!
After 10 years of trying and being told we couldn't have children, I got pregnant. Our daughter, Savannah, was born on May 21st, about three months early. She's doing really well, and I've been pumping every two hours (every four at night) for the last two weeks. I've been given a prescription of Reglan, and I'm still producing very very little.
My milk increased to nearly 5 ml (a HUGE leap, pathetic as that sounds!) just before and just after I got to hold her for the first time, outside of her incubator, but unfortunately, this is still something I can only do occasionally (just the one time, the other day, so far).
I've heard people recommend to drink a beer, which might help with let down (which I don't want to do for obvious reasons, plus I hate it), I've heard people say to take a bubble bath, which I can't do for another four weeks because she arrived by emergency C-section.
Can anyone recommend something else? I'm desperate to increase my milk supply, as they're now increasing her feedings by 1/2 a CC every 12 hours.
Please help! I've got enough things to worry about and cry about, without feeling sorry for myself that I'm not producing enough milk to feed my baby!
