I stopped birth control pills a week ago. Milk supply seemed to shoot right up. Baby gained 6oz in a week..LC was pleased and we didint have to worry about her lack of weight gain anymore..until...2 days ago where the awful feeling of emptiness returned. Here is the pattern:
Baby goes on what feels to me as an empty breast. Baby fusses with grunting until let down. A few minutes later let down begins baby sucks long and hard. About 1 minute goes by and baby is not getting a good flow of milk..she gets fussy again. Sucks fast and no second let down. Sometimes i switch breasts and i get the same result.
is this low milk supply? In the mornings when she first eats after a 6-7 hour sleep my breasts are full and let down is immediately. What is happening? Are my breasts really empty...and why? I had to supplement her with 3oz of stored breast milk. I was so upset. Please help me.
