What could be happening here?
DD is 5 mths, has a tongue tie that just got clipped (as in a week ago). At first our insurance wouldn't cover it.
We HAVE to supplement because I cannot get my supply up. Somedays I will have her at my breast for an hour or so just playing and my supply still hasn't gotten better. She isn't latching very well either. Since the clipping it has almost been worse.
Anyways I have noticed that it will take her a long time to get milk out. This is new (only weeks), it used to be suck suck splash.
Now, she has to suck for sometimes minutes, and she gets very frustrated. Then, when my milk finally does come down she is gasping and it appears forceful.
Gosh, I am so frustrated with breastfeeding. Why don't I have enough milk??? Why isn't this working out???
I feel so depressed about it, because I feel like my one job as a mom to nourish my baby is all messed up.
I can't stand giving her cow's milk,(especially when on the side of the formula tin it say's breast is best...ouch)
She is underweight, sleepy, grumpy, and I have to do something.
