why would an lc tell a nursing mother her milk was too thin?
one of the moms on my local breastfeeding group was told by the local lc through the hospital was the reason her daughter was coughing, throwing up and getting milk up her nose was because her milk was too thin to stay in her stomach. her recommendation was to increase her fish oil suppliments to add fat to her milk. has anyone ever heard of this before?
and to clarify she wasnt talking about AOL or too much foremilk being the problem. she was specifically saying that her daughter was having issues because her milk wasnt fatty enough and couldnt stay in her stomach without the fat.
