nursing often - update, need help
DS is eating every hour and a half to 2 hours since Friday. I don't mind because I don't work those days, but I kind of makes me wonder if something is up. He has recently started sleeping for 6 to up to 10 hours at a time at night, but then I would think he would have started the more often feeding a week ago when he started sleping through the night. I wonder if my supply has lessened, even though I have been drinking mother's milk tea to increase it because I noticed my supply seemed to be starting to get lower (and then with the sleeping longer, I figured he would need to eat more while I was away at work, so I needed to get back up to my previous 12 oz I used to be able to pump). Could he just be going through a growth spurt or needing closeness? We will be playing and all of a sudden he makes the hungry sound and buries his face in my chest. And every time he eats it is likehe is starting to eat after a long fast, frantic until I can get. my bra open for him to eat. If I try to have him ait a bit, he gets very upset.
UPDATE: I just pumped and got 3 ounces - and that was with compressions. I usually get 6 the first time I pump for the day (because it is about 4.5 hours from the time I am able to feed him and pump). That is with DS nursing every 1.5 to 2 hours since Friday and me drinking mother's milk tea 2 times a day and eating oatmeal for breakfast for the last 2 or 3 weeks. My production just seems to be getting worse, not better. I am also drinking water like crazy. I don't know what else to do. I am freaking a little because I am SO not ready to stop nursing and I know DS would have a VERY hard time stopping at this point. Please help.
I know I am not pregnant, so I am not sure what else could be causing the problem
