baby is 8 days old and in scbu so I'm expressing for her. A couple of days ago I had a large hot egg sized lump on one side and around a quarter of the other breast was hard, hot and tender. I know the drill, I massaged, hot compressed and pumped for England in just about every position possible and over the next day the blockages subsided. The trouble is so has my milk! I was getting 120 mls or so 5/6 times a day, this has gone down to 30 mls total at the last attempt. I've got loads of fluid going in, im eating and getting as much sleep as possible. I've upped pumping today to at least every 4 hours or so and im going to pop in some 'cluster feeds'. can anyone think of anything else I can do, or any suggestions for bf
I look rather ghostly so dp is bringing me some multivitamins with iron. would a calcium supplement help?
