Hello again! I have been producing less and less milk the last few weeks and now am not producing enough for my LO.
I have had to supplement with formula and am only producing about 6oz a day
This is my third child I have BF and this time have been able to BF for the longest time (8 whole weeks) so I am happy about that at least but would love to continue! This is what happened (almost overnight) both my breasts, especially the right, became very hard and sore and no matter how often I nursed or tried to pump to get relief they were still hard and sore- AND hardly any milk was coming out. Since then I have been producing less and less. Luckily I had some frozen to use as well! Now, I nurse him when he is hungry and he is still very hungry after emptying both breasts so I give him formula. Should I pump after he feeds to try to produce more?? I hate the fact of being done BFing!!!!!! And hate giving him formula even worse!!! My dr. did mention that my hypothyroid meds may dwindle my production.....any tips on ow to boost it up again for my LO???
