I need some help encouragement. My son is 3 weeks old. I started right from delivery breast feeding my baby but once we were discharged from the hospital, we followed up with his first appt to the pediatrician only to find out that he had lost 15% of his birth weight so the doctor stated that my milk supply must not be fully in yet so she advised me to supplement nursing w/formula until my milk comes in 100%.
I did try to continue to nurse him but he never seemed satisfied. I then tried to pump but to date I still can only get 2-2.5 ounces when I pump. We met w/a lacation consultant who said his latch and the positioning was perfect so that wasn't an issue and she suggested we purchase and try a herb called Fenugreek to increase milk supply. I've now been on these for the past 4 days and am not seeing much increase.
My question is, is it to late for me to try to increase the supply or is it just not gonna happen. I would love to continue to nurse him but if its not there then its just not there. What should I or can I do?
