Dear all BF mummies,
i thought i'll be back to work after 2 mths, so i stopped pumping and latching after 1st month. Now that i'm retrenched, i decided to become a stay at home mum. Any way i can get my breast milk flowing again?
I used to have a lot of milk, and i did not take any medecine to stop at that time, just let it engorged and ceased naturally.
Pls help! Any medecines to take or anything to eat? Really regretted to stop at that time. All because of my stupid company...Sigh!
so wasted becos of work, right? sigh, hug hug. working mummies' woes. did you try to latch on now?
herbs like fenugreek, claim to increase the supply.
if you're still able to get a drip of milk when you pump or squeeze your breast, still got some hope... either take fenugreek or medi from your gynae... my gynae prescribe me a medi to stimulate the breast milk..
Not a single drip already! Breast back to normal since a month ago !
This is what I replied another mummy who also wants to restart BF after stopping:
Do hydrate yourself adequately & try to massage your nipples/latch on as much as you can. If foster mummies can breastfeed, so can you!
Me too.. i stopped for awhile.. and after a few days, all gone..
and yah, she;s used to bottle
I os worry no more milk. During confinement my mother in law keep take my baby away from as i cannot give her latch on then the milk getting lesser. After a month i want to to start again dont know still have or not. I tried pumping only a few drop. I took fernegreek too but will cause body odor
for the meds, do only gynea can prescribe? or normal GP can?
dont want to go to gynea, too expensive..
