So I have a one month old son and I have been breastfeeding him exclusively for the most part, struggling most of the time to satisfy him after feedings, he has been waking to eat still every 45 minutes at night, which some say is common and not associated with a supply issue so I have been continuing and hoping he has been getting enough. He has gained weight, he gained 7 oz from week 2 to week 3 and hasn't been weighed since. He has had plenty of wet and poopy diapers, so I figured all must be going well although I have never been able to pump much more than a few drops after each feeding.
So today, my milk seems to literally be gone. I have no idea what to do. This morning Ethan nursed for a little bit and then fussed some after only a short time. I tried nursing him again and he became very agitated and pulled off my breast crying and went to sleep. I decided to try and pump and got less than one once total. I have not felt full at all today and have not had one successful feeding session where I felt Ethan was content. Each time has been a painful struggle. I should mention that I had a C-section and my milk came in pretty late, about day 6. However, I never had any real full sensation or engorgement at all. My breasts never really became larger during or after pregnancy either, I wore my same bra from beginning to end of pregnancy. I can still go several hours and barely fill the need to pump or nurse. Could this be a problem? It is normal to never feel any engorgement? Anyhow, I finally broke down and gave him an once of formula and took a shower to cry.
My milk never came in with my first son and I attributed it to some severe complications but now I just don't know...help please!
