Thread: Will my supply come back?

  1. #1

    Default Will my supply come back?

    DH and I ate something bad and we have been throwing up and on the toilet all day. I pumped and only got 3oz and i usually pump between 10-16oz. I have a stash to hold me over but I'm so worried.

    I am finally able to keep water down, do u think that will help bring it back?

    You can always increase supply by nursing on demand and pumping more. But don't expect your supply to come all the way back to the same level as before if you don't do those things. This link is good for troubleshooting pumping issues: http://www.kellymom.com/bf/pumping/p..._decrease.html

    Don't worry! I think Mother Nature knows moms get sick :-)...just keep on offering the breast to LO.

    And wow! 10-16 oz! I wish I could do that! I can only pump 3 oz per breast!

    Thank you for the replies. LO is down for the night and I'm going to pump every 3 hours til I see some improvement.

    I feel so awful but I'm going to do my best to keep drinking and pumping.
