This is my second child, and you would think i would be a season pro at it, but I am not. I think it started at the hospital; after I had him, I breastfeed him, then they took him away, then they took so long to bring him back that I had to page the nurse and find out what the hold up was. Come to find out, they had given him formula in the nursery. Latter that night and the next night, Aiden did not pee or poop and the nurse kinda pressured me into giving him more formula. And, when I got home I continued with the supplementing. After a while I said enough was enough and for two weeks, we were doing great until the baby got thrush and so did I. My nipples were so sore and cracked and not to mention the burning and the throbbing. I was told to go to my OB, but because of finances, I never did go. I just used the babies medicine which was Nystatin Oral Solution on myself. I think it worked. The burning and throbbing is not as intense as last week. My milk is way down. I am trying to express the milk via a manual pump, but it is slow going. Only pumping 1 oz at a time. I am really frustrated. Is there any hope? Everyone around me whats me to give up, and I don't have the support that I did when my first was born. Please help.
