I have a 12 day old son who is quite small and until yesterday, felt like we were going ok with breastfeeding. Bub had been demand feeding 3-3.5 hourly but had been increasingly fussy for a couple minutes at the breast prior to attaching as well as not settling well and grizzling. We thought it was just a phase.
The community midwife came out yesterday to weigh him and although he's now above his birth weight and put on 150 in 8 days, she says he's not gaining enough so yesterday I started fenugreek. She also said to feed him every time he grizzled to boost my supply so every 90 minutes last night we did that but I don't think he got any milk? No gulping or swallowing I could notice, no letdown, no milk on his lips at the end, and he was only on for 5 minutes at a time. My breasts are always soft now (as of this week), not ever full, which makes me worry too.
I don't really know what I'm asking. I'm worried I have no milk cos my Boobs aren't full, and cos he's super grizzly and unsettled. He doesn't latch super deep so maybe that's it? I don't know
