I'm new here, but I've read some of the entries, and it seemed like a good place to get some advice or at least vent. I gave birth on June 10 (due date of July 12) to a nice big seemingly healthy boy (6 lbs 6.3 oz). I had to have an emergency c-section because he was footling breech. Until my water broke, I had had a very easy low-risk pregnancy, no complications whatsoever. He was taken to the NICU immediately after the birth due to low temperature and blood pressure; my husband and I were successful in bringing him home after only one week, but the time there has created some difficulties I believe. They started supplementing him with formula almost immediately at the NICU. I was able to get him to latch though and put him to breast for nearly every feeding (always pumping after but never getting enough to avoid formula supplementation...he had strict requirements for feeding amounts). We've been home now for three weeks, and we're still supplementing (about an oz after every breastfeeding (every three hours) of either expressed milk or formula, usually 5-10 oz of formula/day). I'm seeing a lactation consultant fairly regularly, and we're not using a bottle (finger feeding and SNS). I'm so frustrated some days because it just seems like he's never going to catch on. He's started getting really fussy while latching and then not sucking or doing anything once on the breast. He was doing pretty well for the first 3-5 minutes on each breast (then falling asleep and taking lazy sucks while I compressed like crazy), but it seems like he's regressing. I just got some domperidone because I don't know what else to do to get my milk supply up. I had been taking More Milk and drinking Motherlove tea. I just feel as if I'm doing EVERYTHING and nothing is improving. Is there anyone out there with a situation like this? When can I expect him to wake up and get down to business? I've started having trouble getting a letdown during the post-feeding pumpings too. I just don't know how much more of this I can take. Exclusive breastfeeding seems like an impossible goal.
