Here's the deal. My DD is almost 5 months old, and about a month ago I began feeling all crazy about breastfeeding, like I didn't want to breastfeed at all!! (I think it may have been because I quit taking my Lexapro for PPD, but I'm not sure) And now I really want to start breastfeeding again. I've tried Fenugreek and Mother's Milk Tea, but it doesn't seem to really be working. I've heard all the stories about moms breasts becoming engorged after just one day of taking Fenugreek, and well nothing near engorgement has happened for me! I'm trying to breastfeed, but my DD who happens to be teething will suck for a little while and then she starts just to just play around with my boob. Like she will just be pulling it in and out of her mouth and chewing on it, and the she gets really mad, and obviously I don't want her to be starving or upset so I give her a bottle... I really need some advice here.. I want so bad to...continued

You can take all the Fenugreek in the world but if you are not frequently removing milk from your breasts (baby nursing and/or pumping) then you won't make more milk. Keep encouraging baby to nurse, even if it is just for short times. Spen lots of time skin to skin with your baby, take baths together.
Try giving baby MOST of her feeding by bottle, and then having her finish at the breast. Get a nursing supplementer so that you can feed her at the breast. Go to http://lowmilksupply.org/abs.shtml

I strongly advise against Reglan with a history of PPD!! Try Domperidone instead: http://lowmilksupply.org/domperidone.shtml
