Long story short!
I love(d) breastfeeding ..... I was 100% devoted to it! However I am one of those woman whose bodies take a lot of work to breastfeed. I was going with the flow and getting used to taking supplement ( fenugreek), downing water, eating oatmeal , anything to keep this going. I was unable to get any expressed milk I tried for 5 weeks pumping at least 15-20 times a day and feeding every 1.5 hours.I was NEVER able to ger any milk through pumping.( I was relaxed I just could never let down, I rented a hospital grade pump and all!) Let's just say my home was falling apart ( I am a SAHM w/ a 5 year old). BUT none of this mattered as I wanted to continue. Well over Thanksgiving I had a breakdown of the sorts. I feel it was contributed to lack of sleep for 6 weeks. Since Sunday I have been FFing Marilyn and she visits my chest a few times a day but there rarely is anything . I have not became engorged , leaked etc...?
*Why did my milk just stop?
*Is it normal not to leak or anything?
*Is there anyway that I could continue after FF for 2 days?
*What steps can I take with next child to keep producing milk ( Dr. would not prescribe me Reglan) I knew something was up with my milk?
I am REALLY bummed I want to BF soooo bad , I really miss it ! I just don't understand what happened to my milk?
Marilyn is 6 weeks old!
