Thread: Oversupply now concerned that I have low supply

    Default Oversupply now concerned that I have low supply

    I was dealing with oversupply for the first few months. She is 4 months now. For about a month, I could tell that I got my milk supply where it should be; she no longer clicks while nursing, no bloody poops. But the past few evenings, the last 2 feelings of the night, it seems like shes not getting much milk. She cries while latched on and she's been waking up earlier and earlier and she's very hungry. Do you guys think I should take steps to increase my supply?

    Are you currently block feeding or offering just one breast per feeding?

    Increased night waking is very common at around 4 months, regardless of how abundant mom's supply is. Baby is achieving new developmental milestones that make her increasingly restless at night- for example, rolling over and getting an arms stuck under her body can wake baby up- and she's also probably starting to teethe.

    I am currently offering one breast per feeding. About a month ago, I was block feeding
