Resolution!!! I discovered why I could not let down/pump anything before, and the issue is STARTING to resolve. She had a temporary, MAJOR increase in demand for milk and I simply just did not have anything left to pump. She went to the in-laws for the night last night and while she was gone (in a 15 hour stretch), I pumped 27 ounces without even trying. Going by this standard she is probably eating closer to 40 oz of milk in 24 hours compared to the 28-32 I originally thought she was. No wonder why my body can't keep up! I just wanted to share my resolution for others out there that may be looking at this post. The other thing that probably didn't help was my caffiene intake. I did some research and at kellymom it said that caffiene can decrease supply, so I have also cut that out in the past couple days as well.
