I am triing to brestfeed again, I am now off my pain killers (narcotics) and off the one bp med thatat was questionable. I know i wont be able to do it full time but I think any brestmilk he gets will benefit him. he still has his latch and will latch on but I have to give him a ounce or so to take the edge off then put him to the breast. I havent told Curtis so I mentioned to him i wanted to start again and he didnt seem supportive so i go to the bedroom to nurse soo he doesnt know and if it is sucessful then i will tell him. ( i think he is worried about me if thingss dont work how i would handle it with my ppd ) but i am looking at it if it onkly works for a couplle of weeks or so each bit of bm that he gets is a added bonus. anyways I thought i would share this with u ladies, He has now been back on the breast for a wk. (plus I am starting to feel back to normal again i am 7 wks pp)
You are awesome for trying again and for having such a positive outlook whichever way it works out. Have patience - if he keeps sucking your milk will come back. Meanwhile, look into if fenugreek or blessed thistle can be taken with your meds. Also, oatmeal and root beer are known milk enhancers.
yay! Good for you. Glad your are feeling better too
