Hello everyone. My lo is 4 months old and ebf. I work full time and usually pump every 2 to 3 hr at work and as much as possible at home. I drink a lot of water...eat oatmeal...take vitamins...and after I couldn't pump much recently...started taking fenugreek 3 pills 3xs a day.
I am still only getting half an ounce when I pump.
I use a medela pis..called them to trouble shoot..got new membranes and different sizes of the part your nipple goes into.
Nothing has worked. I even try pumping while my husband drives..while lo is eating. Waking up in night to pump....
I didn't have problems until recently. I don't know what to do! I don't want to use formula..but I am already coming to work late..leaving early..and pumping a ton when I am there. I also bring lo to work some because I can't pump enough. I feel like I'm pushing my luck at work.
I really want this to work but I don't know what to do! Lo seems ok when I bf. Just can't pump enough while I'm gone. I could 1st 3 months but now I get almost nothing!
Also I don't take any medications.
