I'm new to the board...
I had breast implants 1.5 years ago..I still have scar tissue under the nipple that hurts from my 12 day old baby's extremely hard sucking. I opted to bottle feed formula and began the process of letting my milk dry up. It didn't really dawn on me that I could pump breast milk and feed it to him via a bottle when my milk came in 3 or 4 days after his birth. I am now trying to relactate using a pump as it doesn't hurt nearly as much as him sucking. Can I be successful at relactation using exclusively a pump every couple of hours? I do try to nurse at least a couple times a day but the pain is too much sometimes and I can only handle about 5mn on each breast. I'd be happy with 4 to 6 ounces of breast milk a day if that's all I can get.
I also read about fenugreek. Does this work for most ladies?
