Hello! I am new to the LaLeche League forums and am looking for some help with a low milk supply. I am currently pregnant with my 3rd child and would really like to nurse full time. When my son was born (almost 3 years ago) my milk supply was very low. I nursed for a week waiting for my milk to come in and finally, after he lost over a pound, decided to supplement with formula, via a SNS. With my daughter, I was still traumatized by not being able to fully nurse my son, that I said if my milk doesn't fully come in, we will start supplementing with formula via the SNS again but much earlier.
Now I am expecting baby 3 and really want to nurse him/her full time and am looking for tips to help my milk supply. With my son, I did have him attached for what seemed to be 23 hours of the day. His latch was great and he was a hearty sucker. My daughter got the hang of latching without my help.
I did enlist the help of the LLL in the area we used to live when I had my son, so I did get quite a few tips that I used. However, I was wondering if anyone out there has any suggestions for ways to prepare during the next 9 weeks that I have until my due date!
