Dont beat yourself up over not being able to express enough milk. You are doing everything you can to provide breast milk for your daughter and for that you should give yourself a pat on the back! Way to go mommy!

Have you talked with anyone at the Milk Bank in Texas Childrens Hospital? They are AMAZING and can provide you with many different things to try. They were such a blessing when I was started my breast feeding journey. I can provide you with the number if you're interested. Just send me an email to I'm terribly sorry I dont have any milk for your precious angel at this time. Let me see what I can do to get my supply back up and maybe I can pump you some?! No promises but I'll try. I have fallen in love with breast feeding and I feel blessed to be able to help others in need. Keep in contact with me as I try to increase my supply again.

Hi fellow mommies!!
I have a 5 week old daughter, Landree and I am very interested in giving her your milk! Let me briefly tell you a little about my(our) situation! Landree was born @ 39 weeks, via c-section. I was very excited about breastfeeding my sweet baby! I wasn't able to nurse until about 6 hours post surgery and when I asked for a lactation consultant to help me, one was not sent until 2 days later...I had to basically teach myself, and Landree how to BF, since my nurse wasn't very helpful! When we were discharged from the hospital, my pediatrician told me to supplement with formula to get Landree to gain weight, (she was 5lbs, 10oz), so I did! After 1 week of BFing and supplementing with formula, I was not expressing any milk..I have been pumping for the past 3 weeks and have only yielded a few teaspoons of milk...I have done everything the lactation consultant has told me to do, and still no milk! I have beat myself up over not being able to provide my precious baby with the best!
Thank you!
--I will gladly pay all shipping/supply cost!
