How do I make sure that my 10-month old continues to get what he needs while my supply has dropped? My little one will begin to feed but pull away or fuss only after a few minutes (he normally nurses longer). When I pump I barely get about 2 ounces total. This is the third time I've noticed this happening since my cycle has resumed post-partum.
I began taking calcium-magnedium-zinc supplements only yesterday after recommendation from another BF mom although I know that it will take a while to help restore my supply.
His pedi. nurse suggested feeding him formula after he has had his solids. I offered him some earlier but he only drank about 1/2 ounce! What do I do for right now and also in the long-term?
