Re: Don't know where to start....
Hi Mama! I'm sorry you had such a rough start with BFing! I can understand why you threw in the towel. And I think it's FANTASTIC that you want to try again.
Reglan and fenugreek will help, but they won't do much unless you empty the breast somehow, either by pumping or nursing. A manual pump will help some, but not as much as a better pump. When relactating, I think a double electric pump, preferably hospital-grade, is a must!!! I would talk to your sister about either returning the pump, or buying or at least splitting the cost of a new one. She's a breastfeeding mama- she's going to understand how important this is to you.
Keep it up with the skin-to-skin contact, and do keep offering the breast. If your baby will latch, you may well get back your supply just from your baby's suckling. (My Mom did it that way back in 1982!)
Keep up the good work!!!
