On Wed I had some surgery and stopped BFing for 24 hours (but conitnued to pump) due to the anesthesia. I then re-started with some help yesterday and my LO seemed to do fine again. He has been sleeping a little longer at night and therefore I usually pump around 3 am. This morning when I got up to pump there was very little milk!!...my breasts felt full but very little came out. I sat there with the pump for about 15 minutes and then gave up. Usually I just turn the pump on and my milk comes gusshing out I can get at least 3 oz on each side most of the time.
I've been taking Vicaden for the pain for 2.5 days now...could this be affecting my milk supply. Has anyone had experience with pain medication and BFing? The doc told me it was ok because that's what they give after a C-section...any input would be great...I'm worried my milk supply might go down, but if I don't take any medication then I can hardly sit up to feed my LO
