This is my first post here. I just had my baby boy on the 15th of June. From the start we have had problems. He was born at 10lbs, 1.5oz and lost 1 lb in 4 days. He also had no wet dipes or bm after the meconium passed. I took him to our family Doc and she said that losing 10% of body weight is normal which I already knew. The problem was that he continuously cried and no pee or poo in over 24 hours. I was a bit freaked to say the least. I have been supplementing with an sns and formula. I am not at all thrilled about this, but I can not let him starve. After feedings, I pump for about 10-15 minutes. I am taking goats rue, fenugreek and blessed thistle to increase my milk supply and seeing no results. When I pump after his feedings, I can't even get 1/4 ounce. I feel like I can't even enjoy my new baby boy because I am a slave to the sns (which is a pain) and the pump. A feeding could last more than an hour. I also have 3 dd's that need to be tended to but I am worthless when I am working this hard. We have already seen a lc and she said his latch was perfect, and looks like he is doing his job. So I ask, why am I not producing milk???? I am now $500 in the hole (the cost to see the doc, lc, herbs, pump, etc...) I have noticed that my baby thinks of me as a giant paci to fall asleep on. He doesn't stay awake beyond 2 minutes of nursing. I have tried everything short of being cruel!!! Well, I was cruel today when he got an ice pack on his feet. And well, that didn't even work.... I am sorry to ramble on lik,e this but I am up to my ears in frustration... Any suggestions?????
