I am kind of upset about this! I have a 13 month old. For the last few months I have been nursing him Much less than I did before- sometimes down to once or twice a day, and not always for too long. now recently my supply is way low. when he woke up to nurse tonight I had like no milk! I started pumping yesterday- and pumped 4 times today- and had pumped aout an hour before I tried to nurse him, so I know there is a connection. Also- the low supply seems to be in the last 2 weeks- which is the time in which I have been hand expressing as much milk as could. I thought pumping and expressing would increase my supply but I don't know.
part of the trouble is a bad latch since he has teeth. He now latches really shallow and it is uncomfortable for me. Now that my supply is low it is even worse because he latches shallow, I get uncomfortbale quickly, and I jst don't let down and then he gets frustrated and stops!
so I really want to figure out how to get him to latch better. And also how to get my milk supply up again. It is down because I don't nurse him enough. so what do I do?! I am feeling distraught over this, especially tongiht. So often I sit down to nurse him and it ends up in a toothy latch and frustration.
