|I have bumped up two threads for you:|
Is my baby getting enough milk?
Where oh where has my milk gone??
Here is also another few sites and articles that I have come across.
are also herbs and teas that could help. Fenugreek and mother's milk teas (sold in the health food sections).
hope that this helps. Good Luck! You are doing an amazing thing for both of you. Keep up the good work. ↑

|I met one woman once that had to suppliment... her diet was way off.. and you couldnt tell her otherwise.. she had no fat in her diet. Make sure you get a gallon (not more) of water a day and enough fat in your diet to procude milk.. I know it sounds silly to say something so basic.. but so many woman are diet crazed they dont realize how processed their food is. Excess water will flush out vitamin and minerals too.. |
the first 5 min is thin milk on each breast.( if i remember my details right). so I'd try and get her to breast feed the to most potenial and get the thicker breast milk.
have you called any le leche members for advice? ↑

|Thanks everyone... I finally got the baby off formula!! She hasn't had any since three days after my original post. We are excited. The tea, mother's milk, helped. I also started pumping after each feeding, which seemed pointless at firt, but now we actually have a bunch of frozen bags of milk in the freezer. Thanks a bunch, sometimes a bit of encouragement goes a long way!! ↑|
