I have an 8 month old daughter and she was EBF until 4 months and then all her night time feeds were BF due to my supply decreasing. I didn't realize building up supply like this was possible! So at 6 months I stopped breastfeeding completely. Up until about 2 weeks ago I was still able to get some milk just by trying to hand express just to see if it was still there. Anyways now with all this melamine studies I would rather not risk it. I started taking my prenatals again. I am going to buy fenugreek and blessed thistle today. I have starting nipple stimulation and will take my pump out of storage today.
My daughter loves skin to skin but I tried offering her the breast instead of soother last night and she got so ANGRY! She kept arching her back away from me but if I gave her the soother she would lay her head back on my breast and start using her hands to explore my breasts. Then she fell asleep. I tried offering her the breast again as comfort this morning before her nap. She was willing to open her mouth but completely refused to let my nipple in her mouth.
I am also scared because she has got 3 teeth now which she didn't have when I quit BF.
Any tips on getting her to latch and anything else I could do to get my milk up. I live in Canada so I need a prescription for reglan etc but from what I can see it is rather expensive. I don't think I could afford it.
