Anyone have any info on nursing with breast implants? My client is having a problem with low milk supply and thinks it may be due to her breast implants. We're trying the following to boost supply - Mother's Milk tea 3x's/day, fenugreek capsules 3x's/day, alfalfa leaf tea and alfalfa sprouts and pumping after each feeding. Baby was born on 1/15 via c-section, weighing 9 lb. 13 oz. On Friday he weighed in at 8 lb. 14 oz., gaining a mere ounce since the last weight check on Tuesday. Couple is offering up to 2 oz. formula after each feeding as "insurance" that baby gets enough nourishment, but baby spits most of it up. My sense is that he's getting enough from the breast. During my 3 hour shift, I change at least one thoroughly wet and one thoroughly soiled diaper. Baby is alert, sleeps well and seems content. I'd like to encourage the couple to eliminate the supplements and see how baby does. Any suggestion on how to "present my case"? Also, if anyone has knowledge or experience with this topic, feel free to email me privately and confidentially at [email protected]
Mom likes to read books, so if anyone knows of any resources I could get my hands on, I'd greatly appreciate it.
