My ds if 4 weeks today. We had a bad start to breastfeeing in the hospital after a c-section (baby was breech) and I'm really struggling. We have a bad latch but I am trying at every (daytime) feed to get him on, which usually involves much frustration and screaming on his part but he now eventually gets on, but often shallowly. At this stage he feeds for 15 - 30 minutes on one side, (which is better than the last two weeks of no latch at all) but I don't think he is getting much as the test I did at a breastfeeding clinic showed he only took an ounce in half an hour. I then feed him expressed milk, top this up with formula, and then pump. This whole process takes 90 minutes, then we start the cycle again 90 minutes later.
The good news is that my milk supply is slowly coming up and I am on a course of domperidone. And he didn't used to latch at all. But I am not sure how long I can do this as I'm just getting more and more tired and depressed. Has anyone else had this double bad latch/low supply problem. How did you get through it?
