New mommy preemie baby boy
Hi, my baby boy was born two weeks ago, and my milk supply seems very low. I have been doing my best to increase it: fluids, fenugreek, and frequent pumping, but it's just not enough. I feel like I'm not providing for my baby like I should I hope it comes soon for him. :( Anyone else have the same problem or is it just my body can't produce?
Preemie with heart condition
My daughter was born at 35 wks and weighed 3 lb 10 oz she has a heart condition as well. She came home at 41 wks (June 1) weighing 5 lbs 1 oz she is now 7 lbs 7oz.
I am nursing but also have to pump and add fortifier to my milk to help her grow. I am concerned with whether or not my milk production is good enough, and also, wondering if she is getting the hindmilk...Should I be pumping after each feeding and using this milk with the fortifier? Help!!
Have a preemie that's still in hospital
My baby was born at 24wk n two days. My milk supply was good for about 6wks; now it's starting to slow down.
So I'm taking the mothers milk to keep my supply up for storage until my baby gets home. I am also taking the fenugreek supplement. I'm going two do both twice a day.
Premature infants and pumping
Thank you for the information on lactogenesis 3 - it is difficult to get this precise information (day 9) and so important when working with mothers of premature infants who are pumping for their babies - Carol A Olsen R.N., I.B.C.L.C.
