My 6 week old son is hospitalized in the ICU because of RSV. He has not been able to nurse for 5 days - he is on a feeding tube. Needless to say, the amount of time with him not on the breast has caused low supply. He is receiving breastmilk though the feeding tube. I am pumping every 2 hours. He receives and ounce and hour continuously through his tube. I'm currently doing the following to up my output :
taking fenugreek 3 capsules 2-3 times a day
i began taking reglan yesterday
pumping every 2 hours
My question is am I doing too much? Is it OK to take fenugreek and reglan at the same time? Will I be be pouring buckets of milk after all this?? I'm so determined not to let this jeopardize our nursing relationship.
