Hi I posted my worries about breastfeeding before, my son is 3 weeks old on Monday, he came home at 5lbs 9 oz, and the Lactation consultants at the hospital recommended supplamenting with formula because he was 3 weeks early and little. So I've been supplamenting about 1-2 a day with formula, sometimes none. I have no support at home my husband thinks its too stressful for us because we also have an 18 month old. My mom was here but now she's gone she also believed he should have formula all the time, because she thought my milk supply wasn't enough. I pumped and don't get much at at, so I stopped pumping and now I'm only bfeeding, it seems as though he is never satisfied, but once he does get the bottle he's content. Another thing I noticed my breast stopped leaking last week, they used to leak everytime he would suck from one breast but now no leaking at all? Did my supply go down all ready?
I've been drinking Mothers Milk Tea, taking Fenugreek from time to time, but now I notice my LO is gassy and hasn't had a BM in two days? I called a LLL leader but I didn't get a call back, I just wanted to know I was doing the right things, and want this to work, it didn't work with my 18 month old I gave up right around 3 weeks with her. I don't want to do that to my son; but its hard when you have no support.
