Yeah I had a military doc last baby and I feel like they weren't to helpful with what I could do because I was the active duty one and then they have to let you go pump and stuff at work.... Next baby I'll be a civilian so I'm hoping maybe it won't be the same.

Maybe you could talk to a lactation consultant. I know there are some pills that can make you produce milk that they give to adoptive mothers. You could talk to your doctor about it. Do you get wic? That helps a lot with formula.

We aren't even ttc for another couple months but I plan to talk to a lactation consultant next time around. I don't believe in doing government assistance unless you have no other option though.

Aw man, I feel so bad for any b**bs in pain!! I had a fast letdown and my lo would choke on it all the time. Plus I leaked so much I would fill up an entire towel. I didn't really do anything though, over time my milk supply just regulated and my letdown isn't so strong.

I probably just would have left it alone if she wasn't so gassy and having issues with imbalance! Plus... I was sick of constantly being soaking wet. Haha.

Sounds like polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) If your doc will give you the official diagnoses, Metformin, helps regulate hormones, which will make you produce milk. Many women with PCOS have issues with producing milk.

You know I'd never thought of that but I just read up on it a little and noticed a lot of it fits with my mom and that it can be genetic. It also explains my acne problems and facial hair and why I have a hard time loosing weight and why dh and I haven't gotten pregnant.
