Can Diabetes affect milk production?
Hello, I wanted to ask a question.
I've been type two diabetic, for about 4 years.
When I first found out I was pregnant, I was really stressed and due to my diabetes, I had to take insulin shots.
To top it off I had to have a c section because of some health complications, my complications not hers.
During my stay at the hospital, I was on magnesium and so was told not to breastfeed my baby, but I was still pumping.
To make a long story short my baby is now two months and the most milk I have produced is 1ml every two hours, I had to give her formula because it wasn't enough for her.
