Restarting BFing - Help!
DD(10m) is still struggling with a stomach bug and the only thing she's keeping down is BM, she wants constant access to feed when wants to.
We demand fed and I was still doing a couple of feeds when this bug started.
No we have gone back to co-sleeping & she's on me all the time & feeding or chewing me.
I don't think my supply is back up yet so what can I do to bring it back up? I am drinking lots, eating well. Anything else to speed it up?
My nipples are on fire, very sore as DD has 4 teeth and two more upper ones are coming out so feeding is painful Wiuld nipple shields help? I'm using lansinoh.
I'd appreciate any advice, thank you x

Thanks, yes it's tricky w a toddler around, he wants attention all the time too.
I didn't wear a bra at home today, mainly because of my nipples.
I'll keep using lansinoh.

The more she goes to the breast the more milk you will make. You could also try a bit of pumping in between feeds to increase the supply. I think your nipples are probably hurting from the sudden increase in feeds and they will adjust soon. My DD has 12 teeth and she still feeds no problem. Poor little thing, hope she is feeling better soon xx
