I am a sad mommy today.
I wish I was one of those women who had that wonderful breastfeeding experience, but mine has always been a struggle.
First dehydration, then relactation. Finally we are nursing, and I thought the battle was over.
Now I have OS, have tried the remedies with no success yet. Called local LC, and of course she never dealt with anyone having to much milk. She told me to let him hang over my shoulder and nurse upside down to help control OALD. Crazy.
I have posted on the oversupply suggestion already.
If my inlaws found out what is happening, I will never here the end of it.
I was concerned when babies poopy diapers went from one week, to five days, then four days, two poops in one day, etc. since nursing (versus EBM). He has been more fussy the past two days. Well, today his diaper was very mucousy.
I am not one of those women that will perserve if my child is suffering. I can not live tied to a pump the rest of my life. I need to get out of my house.
If I can't get this under control, will he have benefits for having had BM for two months? (And some colostrum)
I am ready to give up. They always make breastfeeding look natural and easy in those educational films. They never really let on how hard it can be.
