I have a 4 months old baby girl. My intention was exclusively breast feed until 6months. Then, continue as much as possible. I returned to work 2 weeks ago and been regularly pumping while at work and breast feeding at home.
She had a little fever last week - from day care - and wasn’t eating as much, i kept pumping at work but noticed that my supply was less and less. One of my breast gives me 0.5 to 1 oz when before i was getting about 2oz and 4 from the other one.
I have been taking Fenugreek this week and i also drink smoothies and water all day. I’m drinking more coffee at the office though .
I’m trying to eat nutritious and healthy food and pump on schedule. Why am i drying out? Yesterday i pumped 3 times and got enough for 2 feedings of 5oz. I am little sore too because i pumped longer to get enough. Baby is also waking up to eat 2 times at night when before she was sleeping thru the night.
I really want to BF exclusively until 6 months. But what do i do for tomorrow’s bottles??? I don’t have any reserves left.
