Is there anyone else out there that is not able to breast feed or pump? I feel like I am the only one out there and my other breastfeeding friends don't seem to understand the predicament I am in.
I wanted to EP but each time I try to pump I am lucky to get about a tbsp. of breast milk. I have to pump all day long to get about two ounces a day. I even consulted with a lactation consultant who told me to pump every 1.5 hours. I tried and still nothing. To make matters worse, my milk didn't come in till about 8 days after baby was born and I wasn't producing any colostrum. So, we had to resort to formula becuase my LO needed to eat. I finally gave up on trying to pump becuase I was doing it for nothing and now I am stuck wth at $300 breast pump I can't use.
Has anyone else experienced anything like this? I am not surprised that I couldn't breastfeed as I wasn't able to go into labor on my own due to lack of ability to product oxytocin. To me it is just one more dissapointment as i really cannot afford formula and I wanted so badly to breastfeed.
