My baby is now 3 months old and I'm trying to get him exclusively breastfed. It has been a tough road since the begining since he was born with jaundice and we supplemented him since Day 2. I was nursing him and supplementing. In the first few weeks, he was mostly nursed and I would pump some to fill in the times that I couldnt nurse so at least he would be receiving breast milk. Slow the downward spiral caught up along with other stresses and events in my life led me to exclusively supplement him.
For the past week, I have been taking fenugreek capsules 3 times a day and trying to do skin to skin at night. Also, I have been pumping a few times a day for about ten minutes each. I also brought Mother's Milk Tea to try and see if that will help too. And a little before he was 2 months old, I went to see a LC because he kept falling asleep and taking more than 2 hours nursing and still wouldnt be full. She helped me with his latch, but we determined my supply was low at that point. Now, it is beyond low... I would be lucky if I got out an ounce a day.
What should I be doing to help him become exclusively breastfed? Any idea of how long it may take?
Thanks for any help in advance!!!
