I am still having problems with my milk supply ....I called my local LL and she told me to first try getting an herbal remedy from Good Earth that will supposedly help my supply. Has anyone tried this and found long-term results? Everything I've read so far says herbal remedies seem to help for only short term.
I'm about at the end of my rope and am about to just give into supplementing with the bottle until my milk is gone. I have tried all the advice everyone has given me like wearing my baby and nursing while lying down and etc. (Thank you, btw!) I feel like my baby has a good latch cuz she drains my breasts at each feeding, there's no leaking, and my nipples aren't sore. She pulls off and cries and cries after almost every feeding. I don't think it's gas cuz i've noticed when it's gas that she arches her back and pulls her feet/legs into her stomach whereas when she wants more milk and I don't have as much as she'd like she just pulls her head away and balls her fists up and screams. When I have given her a bottle a few times and she takes 2-3 oz each time and then she's content and I can enjoy her! My husband and I might be done after this child so I'd really like to enjoy her, ya know, just in case I never get to have a newborn again. I'd like to enjoy this phase of her life.
