Can't Breastfeed No Milk Second Baby Coming
It's great to finally see some other stories like mine. My milk just never came in, and I have no idea why.
Breastfeeding councilors were worse than useless as they just repeated the same advice about demand feeding and latch without listening when I explained that I was already doing that, plus more.
I pumped and pumped for weeks, never getting enough to even cover the bottom of the bottle. I wanted to breastfeed so much and the available literature had encouraged me to think that all that was required was the determination to do so.
I really did try everything and it is soul destroying to find that your body just won't work. I cried about this every day right up until the weaning stage. Now I'm planning a second child but terrified that I will have the same trouble again.
