My daughter is almost 3 months old. We have been going strong breastfeeding till about 3 weeks ago. When I pump, I get less then a quater oz. There has been times where iv gotten nothing! I thought maybe it was cause of the birth controll. I was perscribed the one for breastfeeding moms so I thought it would be fine. I also got my period the day after my six week check up. And in the next 30 days I had it a total of 3 times. Not just spotting but a per iod like the ones I use to get when I was 16! So I wonder if maybe my hormons are making it more challenging to produce milk. I have spent the day power pumping and drinking mothers milk. I just cannot seem to pump more then a 1/4 oz in an hour.
Is there foods I can eat? Special tricks? Is my body able to make more milk? Are my hormones so wacked that I cannot?
Any advice would be apprieated. Thank you all
