the long and short of it is I am only making 2-4 oz a day. breastfed exclusively for first 3 days but due to low supply his sugar levels kept dropping in the hospital, so we had to introduce formula. I am pumping 8x a day with one of those times being a power hour. I am diabetic so i can't take any of those supplements, and my endocrinologist won't prescribe glucophage b/c she says it isn't safe for breastmilk, even though i have shown evidence that it is safe. I am hell bent on providing breastmilk through the winter for the antibodies since he is too young to vaccinate. I am drinking at least 64oz fluid a day and eating a bowl of oatmeal a day.. Im also doing guided imagery when im pumping, and im taking him to the breast 2x day just so he doesn't forget the nipple.
any other suggestions? Im really starting to resent the fact that I have to do all of this, and I know that isn't good for milk production.
