I was lucky enough to give birth to my BEAUTIFUL baby girl on 4/20. We had latching issues from day one! The lactation consultant tried her best but it seemed like nothing we tried has worked and my nipples became cracked, blistered and sore- so I pumped from the day we brought her home. I have rented a good hospital grade pump- Symphony by Medela. I was producing milk fairly well (about 4 oz per pump and pumping every 3-4 hours and able to freeze 4oz or so everyday) just exclusivly pumping and I'm commited to giving her breastmilk or else I would have given up when we got home! However I developed mastitis and my production went through the floor. The fever and pain was like nothing I had ever felt, pure misery! I have been on antibiotics for a week now and pumped through out the treatment although I gave my daughter formula to eat after I ran out of frozen milk. The doctor suggested that I pump and dump since the antibiotics in the milk would increase her chances for getting thrush, but as much effort goes into pumping I couldn't bring myself to do that so I have frozen the milk and labeled it differently. Right now I'm pumping about 1 oz every 3-4 hours now; no where near enough to feed her! What can I do to increase my milk supply? I'm worried that it's just going to dry up, especially since she won't latch, and I'll have to give her formula!
