I am in the process of relactating for my 4 month old son. I haven't breastfed him since he was 2 days old but we nursed wonderfully at the time. My milk supply recently dried out about 4 to 6 weeks ago.
I also have PPD (I self diagnosed, not on meds yet but was diagnosed by my OB at 4 weeks post, never took meds) and I'm concerned how having PPD and meds will effect my success.
Any advice and/or tips? Any mama's with success? Or maybe a mama or 2 in the same boat as me with the PPD?
Thanks for any advice/support you ladies can give me...
ETA: Sorry this was so brief, lol. I was tired last night when I wrote this. Currently I am pumping (With an Ameda Purely Yours as I didn't like the Medela Lactina) as often as possible, hand expressing and I just started herbs today. I am currently taking More Milk Plus and an 1 capsule of fenugreek and 1 of blessed thistle (in addition to the more milk plus, which already has these in it). I am expecting a delivery today of some 'flexisheilds' which are supposed to help in areola stimulation. I try to get DS to latch but he still only laughs at my breast. I also have breast shields and an SNS (though I'm getting a new SNS as I'm missing some parts to mine, lol) but I haven't tried to use them yet. With the PPD, I am very easily discouraged and get upset very easily so I haven't really attempted to physically breastfeed other than to offer him the breast a few times a day. Hmm... If I think of anything else to add, I'll update again.
