Hi! My I am currently looking for any suggestions to help increase my milk supply. My son was transferred to the NICU after his birth where he remained for 2 1/2 weeks. I pumped during the time he was in the NICU. He was not fed for the first week of life and I gave the nurses all of my pumped milk. He eventually went through all my milk and they started to supplement with formula. The lactation consultant told me that I should be producing 500mL, 2 weeks after birth. I was at 200ml, pumping 8 times a day.
We have now been home for 5 1/2 weeks and I am still supplementing 1 1/2 oz after each time he nurses. I am currently trying to pump after every feeding. I only collect between 7 and 20 ml every time I pump. I started to take Fenugreek 2 1/2 weeks ago with minimal if any results. Does anyone have any suggestions. I would love to discontinue the use of formula!!
