I've been trying and trying ever since we got back from Easter vacation to rebuild my breast milk. I can only get Aidan to want to feed off them twice a day, other times when I try ther is little to no milk comming out. When he dose choose to stay on more than a few mins, after I'm done with both sides he wants more. I can't even give him a full meal when breast feeding, he still gets apx 4 oz more of milk when I breast feed him.
I think I may just give it up. He's gotten about 2 months worth of breast milk. I sometimes think it might be a good idea but others times I think about how much I enjoy the bonding time we have during breastfeeding. After all it's the only feeding time he actually makes eye contact. I enjoy everything about it. I sit and think about it and I almost get like depressed thinking about stopping it and ask myself, "Should I keep it up even if it's just the two feedings a day?", "If I do stop dose he really know the difference and miss breast feeding with me?", "Will I be depriving him?", amoung other thoughts and questions I roll around inside my head.
I've tried More Milk the herbal drops as well as Mothers Milk Tea. Thats what has helped me at least git this much of a supply back. I keep taking it every day and it hasn't progressed yet. I do try at every feeding to put him on the breasts until he pulls himself off and refuses both sides than I turn to the bottle for the rest of his feeding.
