Hi girls I haven't been on here in almost a year...
I tried breast feeding baby number 1 who is now 10 months but my milk never came in. I tried everything, nursing then pumping and everything anybody told me to try and I just didn't have luck. I am getting ready to get my iud taken out and start trying for baby number 2 and I REALLY want to be able to breast feed is there anything I can do before/during my pregnancy to make sure I don't run into the same thing again?
Breastfeeding takes the effort of mama and baby. It's a team kinda thing. So there's nothing you can do ahead of time to really prepare.
There are herbs and stuff to take when baby is born to help get a supply I think. Hopefully it works out the second time around for you!
