Re: Increasing supply for 5 1/2 month ol
Are you home with baby, or working? If you're home, just nurse him on demand, whether that means every 2-3 hours or every 20 minutes, and your supply will bounce back to where it needs to be. Don't try to stretch the time between feedings- some moms try to do this thinking that it will help the milk "build up" and satisfy the baby better- and don't try to fill the gap with solids. Just nurse, nurse, nurse, and then nurse some more.
