Quoting AKmommy08:“ I take this product (one pill/day sometimes...not everyday though) & it makes my breasts engorge ... [snip!] ... the breasts every couple hours and your supply will be better in no time =) Edited to add: Be sure to drink TONS of water too!”
Quoting lolajessup:“ are you letting him cluster feed? let him eat as much as he wants, whenevr he wantsand within a week ... [snip!] ... are only gonna make as much as you're letting him get on the breast, and if he has formula he's gona get on the breast less.”
Quoting 2PrincessesMama:“ I am still LOW on my supply you guys, its getting frustrated because i am having to formula supplement ... [snip!] ... string because the tiny bit im making im praying to hold onto, before i completely dry out. But it definitely does suck ”
Quoting 3Kids1CrazyMommy:“ Im hoping that the fact that when I pump I still get a tiny bit is a GOOD sign. I will latch him back ... [snip!] ... Im also on Amoxicillin, one diflucan and nystatin cream. Its like I have so many meds so I thought it would be over by now.”hi there, i feel your pain! i got mastitis and had very cracked nipples also so breast feeding on that breast was painful and so was pumping. my dr told me to take motrin for the pain and i would take one and try to feed my son on that breast when he was sleepy and not apt to move alot. the milk flow went down alot and now i'm healed and pumping, drinking lots of apple juice and eating bananas and taking fenugreek to help the milk supply come up. so hang in there also it seemed a little less painful if i lay him down and lay on my side inorder to sort of dangle the booby into his mouth. try to get all of the nipple into his mouth. good luck
Quoting J e s s i c a:" Nothing is going to work as well as putting your baby to breast. Why can't you do that?"Pumping works just fine.Not every mother can put baby to breast, I can't! I've been pumping for 9 months with some bad dry spells, but i always get it back.
