Ok my son is 9 1/2 months old and my supply is decreasing rapidly. Ive never had a great one because i was really sick in the beginning and have had to supplement. I stopped supplementing for 2 months but due to weight gain issues i had to begin again. I want to go see a LC but i am scared that she will think i waited to long to get assistance. (probably an irrational fear). What kind of services could she provide? Can she give medicine? Ive tried every trick so far. Now my son gets angry that there isnt enough milk and bites (well that and his teeth hurt). So would seeing a LC be beneficial? Im not ready to stop breastfeeding. I cry just thinking that it might be over. But i refuse to stop now. He still roots for it so i know he wants it , but i think he wants there to be more in there. Its hard to do an all day nurseathon with a busy 9 month old who bites. But i try. Im sore and fustrated. Any advice would be greatly appriciated. Thanks ladies!
Lactation consultants are soooo helpful, I would not have been able to nurse my first without her help. I don't think she will think you waited too long to seek help. They are there to help you and if you are not ready to give up, they will do anything they can to help you. The first one I saw was horrible and so mean to me for giving my baby a bottle and told me that she will never breastfeed now, so I was ready to give up. But DH urged me to ask for someone else and I am so glad I did. After 2 weeks of seeing her every other day DD was nursing like a champ. Definately give them a call, it is totally worth it!
