I am due in 3 weeks with our third child. I have been unable to breastfeed either of my 2 sons and really want to breastfeed this (last) one. I seem to get a small amount of colustrum in, but have never gotten my milk. I met with a lactation consultant 4-5 days after leaving the hospital the first time, and she helped me pump correctly for 45 minutes, and we had less than 3 centimeters of fluid. He ended up having a severe case of "failure to thrive" and we put him on formula that day. The last time I tried again (nipple shield, pumping, exclusively feeding breastmilk -no supplementing, herbal tea, etc.) but still didn't produce an adequate supply of milk.
My current midwife has suggested Reglen. Has anyone had experience with this or any other methods to correct severe production problems?
