    Default where to buy lactation aid(with bottle/enlarged nipple hole and feeding tube)?

    I could not breastfeed my #1 as I did not get milk till Day 7, by the time she got used to bottle. I am expecting my #2 in Aug 2007, would like to know where to buy lactation aid where to buy lactation aid(with bottle/enlarged nipple hole and feeding tube)?. I checked with my hospital, they said they will not provide it unless, there is a need for it. If my milk comes in late this time also, I don't want my #2 to be supplemented with formula in a bottle. Please help.

    Did you pump at all in the hospital? My milk wasnt coming in fast either so they had me nurse for as long as baby would ( he would fall asleep though cuz he was in that sleepy stage) and then id pump after each feeding for 10 minutes at least. Then I had the pumped colostrum/milk to supplement with and was helping my milk come in... I really didnt want to take the formula route, and to this day he has not had any We also tried to wake him up and get him to eat every 2 hours.
    Maybe invest in a pump, its nice to have anyway. You can rent one from your hospital ( in most cases).

    Thanks for the replies. Yes I did pump and give breastmilk to DS till 6 months (whatever I was getting 10 - 15Oz per day) . But I greatly missed the feeling of breastfeeding directly. I will check with the local LC on the details.
