Milk isn't fatty enough
I have a two week old and from the start I always dreamed of breastfeeding. He wasn't latching on properly but with the help of a nipple shield it resolved.
Now the doctor is saying my milk isn't fatty enough and to change my diet. I changed my diet and my milk still isn't fatty enough. My son isn't gaining enough weight so they want me to supplement with formula.
Yesterday I was diagnosed with antithetical uti and given antibiotics that aren't safe to nurse while on. So now I have been pumping and dumping until I'm off the medicine hoping my milk will become fatty.
This news has been devastating since I always wanted to breastfeed. I feel like society puts so much pressure on you to breastfeed.
