My son is 12 weeks old today and is still having to deal with my oversupply. I've worked on it with an LC for over two months--done block feeding (as long as 14 hours!), used different breastfeeding positions, ingested sage tea and tincture, took Sudafed and nothing has worked. My LC says the only step left is to take birth control to try to decrease my prolactin levels but I am adamant against doing this.
If your son had green watery poops at every feeding, was fussy since birth and had reflux would you switch to formula?
I'm really at my wit's end
On the few occasions when I've pumped I average between 12-14 ounces in 7-10 minutes, and it's been mostly foremilk.
I really don't know if continuing to BF is best since my son has so much discomfort and obviously he's not able to ingest the nutrients from my BM (green poo).
Anyone else deal with this kind of ridiculous oversupply?
