6 years ago with my 1st I never was able to get him to latch, I tried everything but in our rural area couldn't find much help even at local hospitals; so I did only thing I knew to do, I pumped exclusively for 4 months before down right exhaustion kicked in...( working full time, double time for feeding because I was pumping cleaning pump then feeding baby, and stress of being a first time mom). I did about 6 weeks in turn into a milk cow and was able to freeze up a supply that lasted till son was just over 6 month, this time being older and maybe a little more relaxed I'm hoping to be able not only to breastfeed longer but also maybe not have to pump ever oz. My question is should I be taking any kind of supplement/vid to increase my supply now before baby is born (he is due May 13th)? Also any advise on getting baby to latch, educational websites I could check out ect...I really want to have that connection with this baby I didn't get to have with my 1st, also the health benefits and cost saving would all be a plus.
