My son was born 1/20/08, uncomplicated pregnancy and regular vaginal birth (with epidural). Only issue was I walked around with ruptured membranes for 2 days and didn't notice, other than that I had a text book pregnancy and birth experience, with labor lasting about 8 hours.
My problem is this, it is day 6 and I don't think my milk is coming in. I really really want to breastfeed, but currently I am having to supplement with formula. The first two days after my little angel was born, he was screaming all day and night, until we went to the peditrician, and turns out, the little guy was super hungry. He's doing great now, I still offer both breasts before offering formula and also pump as soon after the breast as possible. I am getting really frustrated and beginning to feel that I am failing my child. I have an appointment with a lactation specalist firtst thing Monday AM- and really hope we can resolve this.
Has anyone here ever had a similar experience? Is 6 days too long, and does this mean that maybe I just don't make milk? I am really beginnig to feel like something is wrong with me.
Thanks so much for any advice or help!
