I know there is a ton of information on how to keep your supply up but I feel that I am running out of ideas.
I have had 2 breast surgeries so I have a lot going on. I have numbness in my left breast so I have to nurse on the right first to trigger let down and then switch my DD to the left. It took a while to figure this out but it works. My local LC told me that I wouldn't be able to solely nurse my DD but I did for 9 months now!!! But now at 9 months my supply is slipping. I started to supplement after feedings and at first my DD wouldn't take any formula but now she is eating about 8 ounces a day. I have been on a Fenugreek blend (Mother's Milk Plus) nearly the entire time. I also have tried pumping but I have some numbness from the surgeries so my body doesn't respond to this. I have also gone on Reglan which worked in amazing ways BUT caused some pretty scary depressive tendencies so althought it worked miracles for me, I couldn't continue to take it.
My goal was to keep going to at least 12 months but now I feel like it is time to throw in the towel. I am hoping that someone out there in LLLI land can give me a break thru idea that can save the day for me and DD.
Is there anything else I can do? Is there any other prescription drugs that will help that are safe and legal in the US? I am familiar with most of the foods and natural remedies. The only one that I haven't tried yet is barley tea.
