Hi my FF ladies! I'm having a tough time right now and I'm not sure who to go to for advice. My DD is 3 months old. My goal was to EBF for one year. We started supplementing at a few days old to help clear severe jaundice from her system. Ever since then, my supply has not increased at all. I've tried everything feasible for me - pumping frequently (even throughout the night), lactation cookies, fenugreek, motherlove more milk plus, breast massages, more frequent feedings, more water, and now I've been on domperidone for two months. I still only produce one to two ounces on the left and mere drops on the right. Lactation consultants are of little help since there are no latch issues - just supply issues, and I've already been doing everything "right". So right now DD gets about 10 oz a day in BM and the rest is formula.
Do you think it's time for me to switch entirely to FF? I'm so exhausted. I'm lucky that I stay at home and I have time to do all this work towards BFing, but I produce so little that it almost seems like a waste of time (my DH thinks so, for sure). On top of that, the domperidone keeps weight on me and I'm not comfortable in my own skin anymore, but when I wean off the doses my supply drops immediately.
I don't know why I'm having such a hard time with this decision. This is my last baby and I feel so much guilt for even thinking about no longer giving her even the small amount of BM I can produce.
Any thoughts or advice is really appreciated.
