Hello, I would be happy to help you.
First of all, RH-status has nothing to do with hypothyroidism
. This is a fact. She should have received a medication called Rhogam
if the baby's blood type was RH-Positive. With regard to the difficulty with breast feeding, you imply that she either has low milk production OR the baby is not breast feeding well. I am not entirely clear which is the case. Yes, hypothyroidism can affect breast feeding, so she should be checked. If this is normal, then the next best thing is for her to visit with a lactation
nurse to determine if she is doing everything right with regard to how she is breast-feeding.
I hope that this helps and good luck!
