Hi everyone! I am currently attempting to relactate for my 4 month old daughter. I breastfed her for 1 month, but not exclusively. I had some very bad advice to supplement her after each feeding, and eventually I just stopped breastfeeding altogether.
I started pumping about 2 weeks ago. I also started taking More Milk Plus and Goat's Rue. I've pumped every 3 hours. I am noticing a slight increase but not much. To make matters worse I moved last weekend and since then have not been able to keep up very well. I also left my herbs at my old house and haven't been able to get to them. My ex is bringing them to me tomorrow, but I am so worried that this slump will ruin my chances.
My issues are 1: I can't get my daughter to latch. She screams bloody murder if I even just get her into breastfeeding position. She hates the SNS. 2: I can't seem to get anything with a pump. I've tried a hand pump and a hospital grade pump. I actually get more if I hand express but it can be painful and it takes a long time.
I'm just not sure where to go from here. I've never met anyone who has been through this and I don't know what to expect.
Any advice, tips, or success stories would be greatly appreciated!!
