I am sooo upset!!
For the past few day DD has been fussy fussy while nursing. Bobbing her head, using her hands to squeeze my breasts. She cries and cries after feeds.
She has been on meds for oral thrush and a yeast diaper rash and it is that time for the "growth spurt"..so I thought that was the cause of the fussiness.
Went to the Pediatrician and found out that she had only gained 2 ounces in 11 days! My poor babe has been starving ( I feel awful...especially since she is 7 weeks old now--wouldn't she have gained more since it is growth spurt time??
I don't fully understand how this could be happening!! Its only been 7 weeks!!
The pediatrician recommended that I supplement with formula at night and to start on Motilium to increase my milk supply. I've heard mixed reviews about the motilium. I've heard of the fenugreek and blessed thistle...and heard mixed reviews for that too.
I tried pumping for the last few days after her morning feed...and I am getting nothing but a couple of dribbles. So frustrating.
I used to feel let-down...now I don't and my breasts never feel full.
I can't bear to watch my DD cry like she does when she is sooo very hungry.
She has been getting formula at night now when I know I have nothing left to give her
I'msoo ready to give up with the BF....With formula, me and hubby can see how much she is getting and she was just so content after her evening feed yesterday.
