However I don't have a ton of time to look through all of the posts.
Ok so my son will be 2 weeks old on Tuesday and I had trouble breastfeeding from the first 5 minutes. He came out, they cleaned him up and we put him right to the breast but wasn't really interested. the nurse told me he took in a bunch of amniotic fluid on his way out and so basically he was full. We tried the first day in the hospital a few times but he wasn't hungry. Day 2 he was put in an incubator under the bili lights and we were only allowed to take him out to change his diaper, they put him on a supplemental formula for that time and then had me continue it after he was out because they needed him to eat so he would poop and since my milk hadn't come in yet he wasn't gettng enough from me. so now he's on the formula and i'm drinking tons of water and pumping all the time to try to at least build up my supply but it's not working. I have no problem with him not actually taking to the breast, but i want him to get the breast milk. any suggestions on how to increase supply or get him back to the breast?
