I was wondering.. can being induced before you're ready impact your ability to nurse and/or your milk supply?
I've had problems since the get go with my DD (now 6 weeks old). She has a great latch and a strong suck (says two LC's) but we've still had our share of issues. Now, at 6 weeks, we're learning that my supply may to be blame.
My induction was LOOOOOOOOONG and almost resulted in a section because of my lack of progress. It then took almost a week (milk came in the night before her 1 week "birth day"), which I was told by one LC was a long time. I had no engorgement when it came in, it just sort of appeared (I noticed milk on her lips one time while nursing).
I've been working SO HARD this past week to increase my supply, some days staying in bed with her all day and just letting her nurse, nurse, nurse. I've tried pumping after a feeding, between feedings, pumping on one breast while she nurses on another, and just when I think I've made some of improvement she goes back to having a poor diaper output (as little as one wet diaper in a 24 hour period!).
I've been looking into this possibility (link between induction and milk supply) all weekend and haven't really been able to find anything. I was told early on in my pregnancy that I would likely end up with a section and was told that, that might effect my breast feeding, so I have no idea. I was later told, (after 31 hours of labor) that I wasn't ready yet and that they should have waited a few days. They also told me that my due date MUST have been wrong, and that her estimated gestation was 36 weeks, not 39.
