My daughter is 10 weeks. She was a preemie - 5 weeks early. We were doing pretty well with the breastfeeding, but I was also pumping to give her the bottle when she tired out. (The nurses told me not to let her BF for too long because it was too tiring for her) so I would give her the bottle after she breastfed. I had an oversupply, but didn't worry about it because I just froze the extra. At about 6 weeks, my supply went down drastically, and I had no idea why. I contacted a breastfeeding resource and she suggested I rent a pump to get my supply back up. I had to pump every two hours, like I did in the hospital, but my supply came back. I had an oversupply again, but was happy that at least I had milk. I started trying to cut back on the pumping and bottle feeding, and it was working - I was only pumping 1-3 times a day and my daughter was getting what she needed. My breasts were huge, though, and I leaked a lot. Again, I didn't worry because at least my daughter was getting what she needed. 2 days ago, my supply suddenly vanished again. I could tell my LO wasn't drinking like she had been - not so many gulps, etc. So, I decided to try increase my supply again using the rental instill have. When I pump, I hardly get anything at all. I am so confused!!! Why is my supply so up and down?? I am so frustrated and have considered throwing in the towel. I don't want to have to pump every 2-3 hours to reestablish my milk supply if it keeps going down. I feel like we were making progress and I wouldn't have to pump so much. Now, though, how often should I pump- every 2-3 hours again to get my supply back up? When can I solely breastfeeding my LO??? Will my supply ever be normal?
