Hey ladies!! I am a new member. I come here for advice often but I am bit desperate so I thought I should join so I can get some feedback.
This past weekend, a stomach bug has come through our home and with all the stress and worry and nursing (to the sickos) that I've been doing I haven't been eating and drinking like I should. I knew my supply was low because of it, but I just pumped (my normal pumping schedule) here at work and only got 1oz! I have been supplementing my frozen supply with the sitter because I am not getting enough daily anymore. Me and Ella have been sleeping alone and apart from my husband and OS to keep from catching it. She is coming at me every couple hours during the night (I can see why now) but it doesn't seem to be helping. Today I am going to eat a ton of fruit and have some hearty soup hoping those fluids will help some. Please tell me all is not lost and that I can come back from this. I am not ready to give it up any time soon!!
Thanks in advance for all your help and advice!!!
BTW.. Ella is 5 months today and is drinking about 5 1/2 - 6 oz per feeding. I EBF and pump at work 2 (now 3) times a day. I have not tried any supplements or herbs. My supply just dropped over this past weekend. I hope I covered any questions...???
