I am 11 days pp. On day 4, I felt a tingly sensation in my breasts but they never felt full. I saw a LC on Tuesday and found out the LO had gone from 5% to 7% weight loss from birth weight and that she is only getting about a teaspoon at each feeding. Based on her weight, she needs about 21 oz in 24 hours. She recommended supplementing to get the weight back and put me on a strict pumping schedule. I am nursing on demand, pumping with a Symphony every 2-3 hours, drinking Mother's Milk tea (3-4 cups/daily), taking 2 capsules of Fenugreek three times a day, drinking tons of water, and eating a giant bowl of oatmeal everyday. I feel like my supply is increasing but very slowly. I get about 10-20 mL everytme I pump. My breasts still feel soft and never really full. I feel like I am working my butt off and getting nowhere and I just want to cry.
My goal is to EBF but I don't know that my supply will ever catch up with LO's demand. How long should it take for my supply to increase? Is there anything else I can be doing?
