Hi All, My best friend & I have babies born 1 week apart. She has a question that she is hoping to get some help for, but I have to be the go-between as they are without internet for now and her iphone wouldn't let her post?? Anyways...below is her question:
I recently had surgery and because of some of the meds I was on I had to pump and dump for a few days. Well now weeks after my surgery my supply is still only half of what it once was no matter what I do. When I wake up in the morning and nurse i have enough. But as the day goes on I produce less and less till right before I put her down for the night and I don't have anything left. I know it is based on supply and demand but since I am literally producing nothing by the end of the day I have to supplement with formula or she will just scream and scream. What can I do?
Her LO is just about to turn 4 months old. She was 8-ish lbs at birth. As far as I know gaining well. No problems prior to the surgery. I do know she told me that she had a low supply problem with her other pregnancies...any help you can provide for her would be smashingly awesome! Thanks!
