As my title says, I have a 6 month old who is exclusively breastfed and I am also 14 weeks pregnant.
Up until a few weeks ago breast feeding was going fine but it seems my milk took a hit and I cannot get it back up with the basic pumping/frequent nursing/increasing calories, etc. It seems like maybe my DS doesn't always get multiple let downs and empty my breast (he is used to a quick letdown and gets frustrated with working to get his food) so I think that's preventing my breasts from getting the message that they need to produce more.
He has only gained a few oz the last few weeks and his wet diapers seem to be a lot less wet. His pedi gave me reglan but I am so scared that I'll have depression or that it will affect baby #2 but I am desperate to get my milk back up. Fenugreek isn't safe for pregnancy and I don't know what else to try.
I am in tears, I feel like I have to sacrifice the well being of one child for the benefit of the other.
