You go, mama!
Don't feel bad about originally giving up. Healing from a c-section is horrible! I remember staying in bed for WEEKS when I was healing from the one with my first. I was lucky to have a good nurser, which if I wouldn't have, I may have given up once I went through having thrush.
I'm sure you'll be able to slowly build your supply back up. Try using moist heat as well (let hot water in the shower run over your breasts before you pump once in a while).
And maybe once your supply is a bit higher, you can even try to latch your little one again (look up nursing holiday to just sit a whole weekend to encourage baby to nurse).
Also, there should be an edit button near the bottom of your post.
Good luck! I look forward to following your journey!
