OK..my ds is now 16 days old and my milk has gone AWAY!!!. It came in on day 6..and by day 9 I was only using 10% with the lact-aid, the rest was all me!!!! By day 12 I had developed mastitis in BOTH breasts.
By the end of the day my milk had stopped completely and I had a screaming baby. I have continued to nurse him and give him the lact-aid as soon as he is fussy(usually after 5-10 min of trying to get milk). I nurse him the SECOND he seems interested. As of today my milk is not coming..I'm not feeling ANY let down and I can't pump or express any. I have taken antibiotics and the infection is gone. I am taking a combo of fern. and other herbs. I have breast fed 2 prior kiddos for a total of 4 years, so I'm pretty sure I know when baby is and isn't getting milk
Will my milk come back? I am going to keep trying but I was really needing an uplifting story..I am sooo sad. Thanks for reading. Nicole
