My baby is 14 1/2 weeks old and Im starting to get discouraged on my relactating process. When he turned 3 months, he was exclusively formula fed & I decided I wanted to get him exlusively bf. When he was born I nursed him with supplementing (bec of weight and jaundice) for a month. Slowly, over the course of the first 3 months of his life, he became supplement only. A fact that I HATE, because I have always wanted to exclusively bf.
10 days ago I started taking Reglan & using a hospital grade pump to increase my milk supply. Slowly, I have started seeing my supply go up (from nothing). But lately, I'm worried that i'm starting to platau... I pumped:
I'm finding it difficult to pump 10 times a day so Im trying to at least get in 6 times. Not to mention, like another mom was saying on the board, its hard to get encouragement from people off of the board. just yesterday, my mom was telling me I should be careful about hurting myself pumping and if my milk supply doesnt increase than i should just accept it & be happy I tried up until now. DH is semi-indifferent about the situation. From his reactions, he seems to think that I should be going faster.
Should I be worried at this point or am I prematurely getting excited bec of my mom's comments???
