I returned to work about 2 weeks ago and I'm having a terrible time keeping up with my little fella's demand. He is eating about 3 1/2 ounces every 2-3 hours but I am only pumping 1-2 ounces every 2 hours. when I'm home, I let him nurse on one side while I pump the other just so I can make enough to leave for him the next day. I can't seem to get ahead with a supply. I've been taking Fenugreek for 2 weeks now (4 capsules 3x per day) and I haven't seen any increase at all.
I can't bring myself to supplement with formula. I know it's not my fault but I feel so guilty and heartbroken. He was 6 weeks premature and while he was in the NICU the only thing I could do to help him was pump and provide colostrum (or liquid gold as the nurses called it). I just can't give up but I am constantly worrying and struggling to provide for him. Any ideas?
