Ok I got the SNS tried it a few times and my DD is not taking to it AT ALL! I cant do anything to get her on he breast. Not when she is hungry, not when she has eaten, not when she wants to comfort suck, not when she is tired, not when she is sleeping. Not even with a nipple shield. She throws these horrible fits everytime I try. I am getting so frustrated. Even the SNS thing doesnt work, not even with the nipple shield. I am finishing my 3rd week of trying to relactate. I notice a difference but it is still minimal. If I can never get her on the breast again, is this relactation thing going to work for me? I dont care if I have to be an exclusive pumper, as long as she gets bm is all I care about.
I am taking the fenugreek 3 times a day.
I am drinking mothers milk tea twice a day
I am eating oatmeal everyday.
I am staying away from alcohol and caffiene.
I am taking my prenantal vitamens.
I am pumping about 10 times a day (once in the middle of the night) with the Medela PIS
I make time for skin to skin contact
I ordered the new Native Sling (just got it today and she hates it so far)
I oredered the Domperidone and it should be coming in a week or so.
We co sleep.
JUst doing these things will I be able to get a supply again. I am just getting frustrated with such little progress in three weeks. Help me!
Another thing. I found this on a site about the Domperidone from the FDA. Have you all ever heard of this or heard of anything bad happening to mothers who have taken it? It is kind of freaking me out.
