I have a 15 week old daughter who i have been breast feeding, just lately her weight gain has dropped off, she has only put on 100g since 27/1/11. I have since seen and spoken with a Lactation consultant who has told me to give her formula top ups of 50ml thru a syringe after each feed. I was told to use syringe so she doesnt get used to having a bottle and getting food easier. I have also been expressing (but getting nothing) after each feed, expressing and feeding every 2 hours when she is awake and taking Domperidone to try to increase my supply. It is such hard work and so draining, i want to know if anyone else has had to do this and if it has worked for them? Also should i try fenugreek at this time as well?
I welcome any advice.
