Re: No milk yet and super hungry baby help!!!!
I'm no expert and hopefully a leader will chime in soon but I would stop the supplements if at all possible. I would nurse that baby constantly if possible. This is how you're going to increase your milk supply. The supplements may decrease your chances of establishing that supply. How many wet and dirty diapers was he/she getting before the supplements? The crying could be something other than hunger. I would stop supplemetning at least for a few days and count the wet and dirty diapers. Here is some info on that. http://www.kellymom.com/newman/04enough_milk.html Skin to skin contact may help. http://www.kellymom.com/newman/01a-skin-to-skin.html Is he latching on correctly? http://www.kellymom.com/bf/start/bas...resources.html Get in contact with your local LLL Leader or lactation consultant for one-on-one help too.
I wish you all the best and hope that you are able to build your supply and be successful.
