Re: Confused about letdown and some other stuff..help!
I'm not a lactation consultant, but wanted to let you know my kid didn't latch on until he was 8 weeks old. I felt like a failure too, but it really isn't something that you feel long term. You'll feel better about it soon, I promise.
I had immediate letdown too and was always confused because I thought I wasn't getting any.
You have to eat real oatmeal (old-fashioned), not the instant kind.
Less sleep and more stress are going to lower your supply. I know it didn't help to hear it when I was struggling, but you are going to have to relax when you are pumping!
Yes, you still get all of the benefits of breastfeeding.
