Hi i am new here and dont know how this works.
my daughter was born on the 19th november and she was 6 weeks early so she was put into special baby care unit and i wanted to breast feed so i started but they were wanting me up at the hospital every time she wanted fed (every 2/3 hours) which i couldnt do seeing as i have a 5 year old too i lasted a week and really couldnt do it coz i was trying to express and i wasnt getting much out and i was getting too sore with the pump so she went onto bottles but recently she has been trying to suckle both me and my partner (much to his shock lol) so i am wondering if she wants back and feeling she is missing somthing i have tried to see if she would go to the breast and she does the only thing is that i dont think i have any milk to give her as i stopped leaking months ago and when i try nothing comes out at all what can i do about this and how can i get my supply back as i feel she is missing out in such a wonderfull thing for both myself and my daughter.
I couldnt breast feed my son coz he wouldnt latch on so he missed out in it too and i would love to have that experience of giving my daughter what she needs as it will benefit us both.
Please help as i am a little confused about it all and dont know what to do for the best.
Thanx for listening and any advice would be great and very much appreciated.
Thank you Helen xx
