Hi, im new to bf my son is 10 and i didnt bf with him, but my daughter was born almost 4 weeks ago and we decided to bf. It started out great not a problem and then a week after she was born i dried up, there was nothing comming out for her, this went on for 2 days and the day i went to the health unit to get it checked i started producing milk again. I called health link since it was on a weekend to get some advice and nothing she said worked, the warm wet cloths on my breasts produced a half ounce or so from both breasts combined and not often. Anyways then 4 days after i got my milk back i dried up again, the health nurse found this weird, i went in thinking maybe it was a latching problem or something and she couldnt believe that i dried up she never heard of drying up and suddenly producing, but i started again the next day, then this past sunday my daughter latched on to my breasts at 1 pm and only got off for 15 minute naps where she woke up crying and latched on where she would suck for 2 hours alternating breasts and fall asleep for another 15 mins to 1/2 hour, by tuesday night i was a mess she still hadnt stopped and nothing was working she was hungry and getting nothing, we finally had to give her formula she ate 4 ounces fell asleep and slept for 7 hours in the morning my breasts were engorged and she feed happily from them, but after that there was yet again a low supply of milk, so my finace and i decided to formula feed her for the day and i pumped myself to her schedule to see how much i was producing. she eats 4 ounces per feeding and she feeds every 3 to 4 hours, i pumped 16 ounces yesterday and thats all i could get for her. today i had her on my breasts till she pulled off crying where i gave her formula to fill her starving tummy and im going back to the health nurse tommorow, i also noticed the milk i managed to pump, all 4 ounces, are almost water, its almost clear enough to see through and it has a very watery taste to it. sorry for such a long post but im at my wits end, my mom said she dried up at around the 3-4 week period with me and fed my brother till her was 6 months and im scared of it happening to me, i just dont know what else to do, has anyone else had this problem, oh and something else that might be related she ended up with a yeast infection we had to get treated and the doctor said it doesnt seem to have affected my nipples and i have sharp pains in my back on my right side when she sucks on the right breast, i also get sharp pains on the right side of my left breast that arent the same feeling as my let down, my let down feels like someone is squeezing my breast as well as stabbing it with a billion needles at the same time, these ones are sharp almost makes me stop breathing pain. I know i shouldnt supplement but her crying and fighting upsets me too much and i wont be much good pumping from the looney bin LOL, anyways i keep pumping and keep putting her on the breast till me and her cant take it anymore, but ill take any ideas at all because i just dont think the health unit can help me tommorow they havent seemed to be able to healp me the last two times.
