Hello, I am EBFing my 10 weeks old daughter but lately I am quite dry in the late afternoon and evening and she is hungry. Sometimes I manage to pump during the day and keep some milk for the evening, but my supply is on the low side so when I pump I often have to give her the EBM right after, plus I have a 3 yrs old at home and pumping is not easy. I usually get 30 ml (1 oz) combined or less per pumping session.
I take fennel tea and started a preparatiom based on goat's rue and ricinus 4ch on suggestion of the midwife, but it is not enough. I let DD nurse whenever she wants and for as long as she wants, and for the moment she is gaining weight and has at least 4 soaking wet (100 ml each) disposable diapers and two bm per day, however her weight gain is slowing down fast and approaching the lower acceptable limit. Same thing for the diapers.
I would like to increase mlk production in the evening before it is too late. I am thinking to take fenugreek and would like to take goat's rue in a more effective form, do you have suggestions on this? I would also like to squeeze in one or two pumping sessions and I am wondering what would be the most effective way.
Thanks in advance for the help!
