I'm thinking about EFFing my 12 week old. I'm barely producing an ounce a day and that's pumping 10 times a day! I keep myself to a strict schedule as I work long hours. DS does not breastfeed. We have had trouble latching because he went into the hospital at 4 days old with Staph Scalded Skin and 45% of his skin came off so I couldn't hold him, could barely touch him, and was forced to bottle feed him. To make matters worse, my milk came in the same day but because of the stress, not to its full potential and I have struggled ever since to produce barely anything. My pediatrician keeps going on and on about IQ points being determined with how long a baby is breastfed and I am trying. He fights me if I even dare get my bare boob anywhere near his face! I do feed him what I pump but its such a tiny amount and now it's declining! I spend tons of money on mothers milk tea and fenugreek vitamins and nothing is working! What do I do? I can't afford a lot more of this as a single mom going through a divorce with no financial help at all from my ex husband!
