Yesterday, pumping got me 1 1/4 oz... and that was only 3 pumpings! I had a rough day yesterday and didn't pump much...
DH told me today that my sweat smells sweeter so I'm hoping that means the fenugreek is working. Oh and I started to leak again. Yesterday when I hadn't pumped in about 5 hours, I leaked while I was out. And then this morning when I got up and went to the bathroom, I was leaking. Not much but hey, that's a sign, right???
If only DS would latch! Oh well, I can and WILL get this supply up by pumping only (maybe with a little help from DH, lol!)
Oh and is it a good sign that I feel achy and full an hour after I pumped?
It took me 4 days (from 9/18) but I have 3 1/2 oz of breastmilk to give DS today! That doesn't include todays pumping (which I got 1/4 oz, btw). That's enough to give him a real good taste of it! He's had 1 1/2 oz at a time before but never HALF a feeding! That's awesome! I almost want to wait until I have more to give it to him but I'm sick too and I want him to get the antibodies ASAP so that maybe I can keep him from getting it or at least, getting it bad.
Just wanted to update that the Dom and Fenugreek (I jsut started the fenugreek 2 days ago though) are working great! I highly recommend Dom to ANYONE!
I hope all is well with everyone else! Lots of hugs to you all!
