BREAST MILK DRYING UP. HELP!!!?
Hi, my breastmilk is drying up.
I had been expressing my breastmilks but for about 3 days I didn’t have time to express for various reasons, and when I got round to it I had just drops. If I use the machine nothing comes out but when I use my hand, I have drops.
I think having not regularly expressed over the past three days has caused it to stop. I am completely distraut and don’t know what to do.
My baby will not feed off me because it gets frustrating because it is not flowing.
I was advised by midwife to continue massaging breasts and trying to express by hand and hopefully if baby feeds the flow will resume. But for the past week, there are still just a few drops (maybe even about 4 drops).
I have been taking fluids.
Baby will not feed because hungry so has to have formula bottle.
Does this mean that my milk is gone for good? If not, how can I get it flowing again?
Baby 4 months old.
Hi all, I’ve tried all these things but it seems to be drying up completely. Is it too late 🙁
I am not able to send emails but mine is firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to receiving them.
Thank you all.
