Unfortunately, BFing did not work out for DS. My milk came in late, and since DS was jaundiced, the LC at the hospital recommended I start pumping with a hospital grade pump immediately, but even then my supply was very low.
He also had severe tongue and lip ties that we weren’t able to get lasered until he was over a month old. So no latch, and later we found out that he’s lactose intolerant to boot. I caved and gave him formula at 3 or 4 days old because I couldn’t stand his hungry screams. I tried supplementing, but later found out my milk was making him sick, so at 6 weeks or so that was the end of that.
Have any STM+ been in a similar situation and were able to successfully BF a sibling? Is there anything I can do this time around to make it easier? Lactation cookies while pregnant? Thanks for any thoughts and advice on this.
