Re: need advice
Hang in there mama! It does get easier. I use fenugreek, blessed thistle, and dom. The combination of the 3 seems to work for me and if I leave one out, my milk supply drops. I don't know anything about the latching issues. Could a lactation consultant help? Or is that something that has already been explored? Also, the house can wait. I remind myself that it is more important to spend time with my lo than worry about the mess. If others don't like the mess, they don't have to look at it - or they can clean!
Oh, I forgot, any chance your lo is lactose intolerant? My lo screamed too in the beginning. Through trial and error, we realized that he was sensitive to dairy. Things got better when I switched to soymilk, almond milk, and other nondairy products.
