Breastfeeding Moms Breastfeeding Moms

I have an issue.  I have big breasts with flat nipples and a nipple shield/shell doesn't work.  My son refused to latch at birth and still refuses to latch.  I pump every four hours for an hour with a double breast pump.  I am not producing as much as I need too and because of it my child has formula though the day and breast milk at 3am and 9pm....What can I do to help stimulate my milk production?  My husband helps massage and everything like that but it doesn't really help!!!

If your'e exclusively pumping(not nursing at the breast) then you need to pump WAY more often.  You can take  things til the cows come home but if you're not pumping more often  you're not going to see much difference. Supply is made from demand. You need to be pumping every 2 hrs during the day & every 3 at night. It's a LOT of work which is why we often try to discourage eping.  You can get More milk plus , fenugreek, oatmeal, oatmeal cookies, make lactation cookies, etc to help.

There are non- alcoholic beers it's the yeast not the alcoholic in the beer..and it is safe to drink and breastfeed just not safe to be drunk or buzzed..safe to drive safe to nurse :)

Well you are underage... so I would say no but is k for a nursing mom to drink. a breastfeed baby should get more the 3 oz per feeding and a 2 wk old should not get cereal or a feeding bigger the 2 oz.
