So I have been doing all the right things including pumping every two hours etc. But the lo still will not latch unless its with a sheild. So I'm wondering if this ok can I still get stimulation from this because he is still geting milk and skin to ski? As for pumping I have had no increase in a week.
The other day I started hand expressing just for about five minutes on each side and I am squirting out milk (should be getting an ounce or so)!
So basically can I hand express to get to the point where I can start getting results from pumping? Is it still good stimulation? What about putting heat on my breasts for extra stimulation? And is using the sheild going to make me produce more milk?
I got a sling and I'm just going topless with my lo attched to me all day and taking baths with him because he just screams at the breast. The reglan just had horrible side effects and I just want him back to the boob!
Thanks lovely ladies!
