I am having trouble getting my supply regulated for my 13.5 month toddler. My son wants a big feeding at bedtime. I dropped 1 pumping during the day at work. I still pump twice at work but would like to stop daytime pumping soon too. He has cut back on his 1st a.m. feeding and he dropped his after-work feeding.
He is very unsatisfied with his bedtime nursing - and will sometimes nurse over an hour at bedtime. Last night, I asked if he wanted more milk. I offered him expressed milk. He drank another 2-3 ounces and was then able to fall asleep.
What can I do to help boost the supply for that feeding while he is shortening/dropping his other sessions.
My 2 a.m. session is yielding very little milk (he still nurses at 2 a.m. and 5 a.m.) - as I pumped while traveling last night.
If I started domperidone again - would it help? It seems a bit extreme since the overall sessions have cut back quite a bit. I would like to get to bedtime feedings and overnight as needed. I would have kept the first a.m. feeding too - but he is excited to get his day started.
Any advice on building quantity on the sessions he has kept???
