Enough Milk For Next Baby?

QUESTION

Dear Fitness Expert,
We may decide not to have any more children but if we do I would like to give breastfeeding one more try. The first time I literally did not have enough milk. The baby was not getting wet diapers...I started supplementing my first born with the SNS (little tube) attached to the breast so he would get both the same time. Later I quit that and still breast fed and bottle fed. He weaned himself at around five months.

Tips to Make Sex More Comfortable During Breastfeeding

QUESTION

Dear Fitness Expert,
I breastfeed my 14-month-old baby. Ever since my baby born by c-section, I have pain during sex. I went to doctor and she said I have infection. She froze it and gave me some ointment. I am a little better.

I have read that during the time you breastfeed the vagina isn't so well lubricated. Can you suggest ways of compensating that won't be harmful to the baby?

QUESTION

Dear Lactation Consultant,
It's been 10 days since the birth of our baby girl. My breast milk took about five days to come in. Our baby wouldn't latch on to me because of my flat nipples. I was given nipple shells, but she didn't like those either. Since then I've been pumping with a double breast pump and bottle feeding in order to supplement with formula since I wasn't producing enough milk.
