Yay! I've been trying to re-lactate and i'm proud of myself for sticking with the plan. DD refuses the boob so i've been pumping. She looks at my boob like its some creature from another world. She would rather go hungry. That being said I have been pumping every 2 hours like clock work (thank you to the mom that gave me that advice.) I have not tried supplements as of yet. So today I FINALLY got something to come to surface while pumping. It didnt actually make it into the bottle, but it did collect around the surface.
When I was done pumping I looked at the milk and wondered why it just sat there LOL. When I touched it it was sticky. I mean STICKY. Like syrup. WTH? Its yellow and sticky and i'm wondering if its even safe to give to DD.
Have any of you ever had sticky breastmilk. Yellow and sticky?

Spend lots of skin to skin contact time with your baby in bed or on the couch. Get her down to her diaper and wear something button up the front or snap up the front and no bra so you can slip her right in your shirt or a robe. An oversize shirt is good. Wear her in a front carrier skin to skin. It will get her used to the skin to skin contact, put her near the breast to get the right idea, and stimulate the breastfeeding hormones.
