I have a 2mth old baby and I'm thinking that my breastmilk is starting to run out. About 3 weeks ago I would only 'let down' maybe once a day, my boobs felt really soft all the time & she kept pulling off the boob over minute or two & would just keep crying. I went to the doctors and they put me on motilium and I found that it did work but when she had her 2 mth vac's last Monday she didn't take it very well & was rather sick. She went totally off the boob and the doc said it's normal when there sick as they get lazy cause breastfeeding is so much harder for them than the bottle. But now I'm back to where I was a few weeks ago (it may not be from her not want the boob, it may just be life tho).
I'm in two minds, I have read that fenugreek can help and also my mother in law told me to try malt beer. I have no idea where to buy malt beer for a start, so if any one would know that would be great. But I'm a little scared to try the fenugreek or if I should just let it be. Is it healthy to keep trying to force it? Like how many times should I try different things to keep my milk?
Has anyone had the same or similar issues & what did you do?
