Today I received my SNS, and hospital grade pump thanks to a wonderful woman at my local birthing center. As i’ve explained i lost my supply completely when little man was only 5 1/2 weeks old. I’ve been trying ever since to get it back, but never really knew what i needed to do. I found a group of women, and they suggested
this, with a great success. I only have one problem…
Elijah finds my boob to be evil, horrible thing that is in his way of actually eating. I know if i can get my milk to come in this may become a non issue, but i have to get him to latch before i can get milk. It’s a viscious circle. So let the pumping ensue. It’s not fun, or pretty, and it involves 5 hands, that i don’t have, but i’m trying.
Tonight, we tried something sweet, to see if he would take it that way, and he did for 2 total seconds before realizeing it then became formula and he was ready to beat me over it.
After the crazy insane screaming started, i had to give in and give him his bottle, so he didn’t starve. What to do? I can’t fail, he’s spitting up a crazy amount of formula, no matter what brand/type etc. and goats milk is way to expensive to drink all the time for him.
Suggestions? Grrr..oh yea and tears may have been involved.
Post 2/4 this week, i’m half way there! Oh Yea..
