@Stretched thanks for the reply. I am also going to embrace mixed feeding which means less pressure for me. I have been trying to hard to exclusively BF.
I will google dr jack Newman. I didn't think we could have more than 60mg of motilium a day. How long were you on 90mg for?
I am also thinking to stick with bottle for the 11 pm feed as it's less work for her and it will be easier for her to stay asleep. It might mean she can sleep through the night better.
It turned out lots of my friends who said they BF their kids have mixed them with formula too.
Hey. I just wanted to pipe up with hugs first.
Sometimes our bodies do not produce milk. Please do not feel guilty. I have pasted a link below - maybe it could apply to you?
Unfortunately, the timing of a formula bottle never helped my DS with night sleep. If she still wears herself out feeding, make sure they check her tongue tie didn't reattach.
Hi OP. I'm glad to see I'm not alone! I had my second baby 5 weeks ago and pretty much the same thing happened to me. This happened with my first baby too. I had motilium, pumped, saw lcs regularly, did everything but I just couldn't make enough.
So this time around I've done all that, plus had my placenta encapsulated and boobie bickies, and I've been using the medela sns. Still not enough. A couple of midwives said to me that I just don't have enough glandular tissue. So I plan on mix feeding for a few months at least, then see how I go. I would have loved to exclusively breastfeed but it's just not happening for me.
