My DS was born 6/18 and I have been struggling with low supply. He got jaundice pretty bad at about 4 days old and spent 3 days on a bili light at home. I was prescribed Reglan, and have been taking fenugreek and blessed thistle - which amounts to 19 pills a day. I tried exclusively pumping every 3 hours for 30 minutes and it's a "good session" if I get a combined 30 ml. The fenugreek and/or blessed thistle gave me severe intestinal distress and diarrhea so I discontinued it.
I wanted so badly to EBF, but it just wasn't in the cards for me. I have made peace with the fact after many tears. I am currently feeding Baby's Only organic formula and so far there are no issues with spit up or constipation. I am waiting on an order of HiPP formula from the UK so will soon test that out. It is milk-based, as opposed to the formula I currently use which is based on brown rice syrup.
I'm so glad to have found this board - it seems like it will be a great place for support. Society is pretty harsh on non-BFers, isn't it?
I look forward to connecting with you all!
