Jennifer, LPN and nursing student, Doula, CPST, and VBAC mama x3 to
AJ (5/03), Evan (12/04), Ilana (11/06), Olivia (2/09), and Unity (8/2012)
Ped said not to worry too much, lactation specialist said to supplement.
She's 5 weeks now.
She nurses constantly and IF I get to attach myself to the pump I don't get anything out. I always express some out when she unlatches, I mean they are drops but they keep coming. I was wondering if lack of sleep might be part culprit.
Mama to Amelia - age 6
Entirely likely. Any chance you can go to bed for a few days, just you and the baby? Have someone bring you meals in bed, etc? Housework will always be there, but your milk won't. Is your DH supportive enough to "mother" you for a few days?!

Also, how's your intake? Are you getting enough to eat and drink? (That was a problem for me in the beginning.) Eat like a hobbit--7 meals a day (breakfast, second breakfast, elevensies, luncheon, afternoon tea, dinner, and supper) as much as possible. Eat now, worry about calories later. Drink lots of water, stay away from caffeine, and try Mother's Milk tea and Fenugreek capsules.
