So, I always hear this "only 2% can't breastfeed" and I'm wondering if I fit in the 2% or if I did something wrong that I can fix for my next child. I did not want to use formula, didn't buy bottles beforehand. I nursed as much as I could and LO had orange concentrated pee at 2 days old and was losing weight constantly. I was told to supplement, I used a SNS system (tube by nipple that give formula/pumped milk), I power pumped, took herbs, took lots of domperidone, drank more water than I could handle, ate as much as I could and healthy things, ate steel cut oats 2x a day. Yet he still lost weight. I kept this whole thing up for 9 months, then he selfweaned and only bit because my supply was just dwindling, so he was on formula and whatever I could pump until I stopped producing.
What can I do different? I'd love to EBF my next LO!
I also never got engorged or anything until I too domperidone..
