    Default wanting to continue to breastfeed

    Well the trouble started when I was suppose to go and get my gallbladder taken out. Twice now I have travelled 2hrs to the hospital to have the surgury and they have made me wait 5hrs in the hospital to tell me they can't fit me in today. So after going with no food or water for more than 12 hours. I have run into some troubles. I have started to supplement with formula. I want to get back into the grove of just breastfeeding. Could someone please help me get started. I am bf about half and half. He has no trouble going from bottle to breast. I know this is good for my son so I want to continue.

    No I am not co sleeping, I have no problem with the night feedings at all. I started to take fenugreek and blessed thistle, I was told by my lll leader that it will help in increasing milk production. I did some reading on Dr. Jack newmans website. I am also taking micronor bc I think that I am going to stop taking it to see if it will help any. My dh is out of town so it won't matter.
