Hi ladies I have a question! My baby girl is one month old today! When she was born she was in nicu and while she was in there she was fed formula in a bottle and we’ve tried to get her to latch onto my breast and she does! But she won’t suck hard because she’s use to a bottle and I would get so stressed out & I just gave her formula in a bottle but today I saw that I still have little milk left because I was leaking just very little so I decided to try to breastfeed her because I REALLY wanted to breastfeed I was just really stressed with having a new baby and idk I just felt like I couldn’t do it so I quit so fast but now that I’m use to her being around I want to breastfeed and so I put her on both breasts and she wasn’t having it but I remained calm and so now I’m wondering if I’ll produce milk again? Any tips? Should I try lactation teas?? Anything I am determined to do this.

— Have you tried pumping and giving it to her in a bottle!

— Keep putting her on your breast (as many times as you can) and drink lots of water .

— @damn.it.red, yes I did that for awhile! But then my milk supply started getting super low I thought I didn’t have milk anymore so I just stopped

— @momofdeuce, I will I’m really hoping this works out I hope I’m not too late :(

— @selenadanielleramirez look up power pumping too !
