Raspberry Leaf Tea and breastfeeding?
With my DD I had the milk supply and the attatchment, yet my DD didnt put on weight. She would take at least 1hr to feed. She was jaundice and we had to undress her to wake her and keep jostling her etc to get her to keep feeding. She would never sleep for long and cried and cried, I think I went mad. After a few visits to the nurse I was adv to do top up feeds (formula) as she needed to put on weight. When she was born we had trouble getting her to suck (born 37weeks3days) and I had to have a tube attatched to my breast so she could get some formula as breastmilk didnt come in until day 5 and I wanted her to be BF not bottlefed.
Anyway long story short, I am close to having this baby, which will be born by c/s and am extremely nervous about not having great milk. Does taking raspberry leaf tea in a tablet form help with breastfeeding at all?
All help greatly appreciated.
