So for me, I thought breastfeeding was going great.
My midwife says as long as Tula is having frequent wet and poopy diapers, my boobs are doing its job
I have been meeting with a Lactation Consultant for preventative measures, and she says she is concerned that i am not making enough milk. she weighed 7lbs 3oz at our first appointment, and 7lbs 4.4oz at our next appointment, two days later.
She wants me to start pumping and taking Fenugreek and cut out all dairy from my diet. My midwife says that my supply is fine and taking fenugreek will make more then the baby needs and will make her tummy upset.
I'd ask your LC why she feels these changes are needed as opposed to simply adding a couple more feeding or pumping sessions. That alone would bump up supply. Personally I'd rather try that before taking anything, even if it is a natural supplement.
Take care and enjoy your little one
