I'm literally in tears as I write this. I've had every problem under the boob, but supply issues was never one. I've always had a HUGE over supply. By huge I mean, I would nurse and still pump anywhere from 4-15oz.
Monday - saw an LC. Got off the nipple shield finally after 4.5 months. During that session, my breasts got extremely flat. Since that APT they have stayed that flat. He nurses every hour, hour and a half. But my breasts are like, floppy flat now. I've never experienced that. Also, he's getting SUPER SUPER SUPER angry at the breasts now. Like, he makes fists - gets very red in the face - and freaks out at me and pops off. Also, he went from nursing 30 minutes to nursing 5. Also, I use to leak on the breast that I wasn't nursing him on... and now I don't feel any let downs, and I haven't leaked at all since Monday. Not once. One more thing - after his night time nursing session, I EASILY pumped 4oz up to 6/8oz. Now, I can't even get half an oz. I did go from pumping every 3.5 hours to pumping every 5-6 hours overnight (this is over the last 3 nights).. and I did this because my breasts are so flat, that I figured it would be fine. I did get a clog in my right breast, but yesterday I was able to get it to go down and the red marks on the breast and pain went away.
What is going on. Is my supply going away? I don't know what to do. I can't see my LC again until Monday.. what do I do until then? How do I go from MASSIVE over supply to hardly enough?
