moms who are not producing

by Heather

I just found this support site after looking for days for information about breastfeeding for moms who are not producing.

My son is only 6 days old, but I am still not producing any milk, nor am I going through engorgement.

I have contacted many professionals, my son's pediatricians, my OB's nurse and lactation consultant, the lactation consultant at the hospital in which my son was born, and the local La Leche League.

They all say keep trying and that I should not bottle feed much as it would stop him from trying to nurse. I am watching him loose almost a pound since birth and I am supplementing now because I don't want him to be unhealthy and unhappy.

I am super frustrated as there are not many sites that give professional information and assistance to moms like me.

This site has made me feel a lot better about my lack of milk production for my son. I will continue to try a bit longer and pump when I get one, but I am very sad and just want this to work out.
