Hi there! So I need some advice on how to get my milk supply up. My baby is 4 weeks old and I am only getting about 1-2 oz per feed. Here's a little of my breast feeding history:
Week 1: Had a very sleepy baby who had a hard time latching on. She lost 10% of her birth weight by day 4. She wasn't Jaundice. I went to a lactation consultant who had me begin pumping after nursing to supplement what she wasn't getting. My baby still did not gain a whole lot.
Week 2: She only gained 4 oz, even after supplementing and still had a hard time latching on. The lactation consultant had me supplement with pumping and formula. I saw an increase in weight gain.
Week 3: Still had a very hard time latching and feeding, so I began exclusively pumping to try and get my supply up. I was only pumping 1 oz and still supplementing with formula. I then began taking More Milk Plus. (been on it for about 5 days now). She is over her birth weight now and doing fine, but I don't want her on formula! I want to increase my supply. I've had her on the breast more and more this week. But each time, she's drained both breasts and is still starving - and when I check to see if there's anymore milk, the breasts seem to be dry.
Sorry for the long post, but I am definitely frustrated with my body and I was wondering if any of you have any advice? Thanks!
