I've never had much milk, no breast enlargement during or after pregnancy, unable to pump despite trying and trying. But, have persevered!
Up until 4 weeks ago I was feeding 21month old 6 times; on waking, mid morning, lunch time, afternoon, bedtime, dream feed.
Toddler's head cold meant nursing strike and for 2 days she did not feed, then re established back to 4 times a day (not enough milk for any more than that).
Last week I cut out 3 night feeds as it kept disturbing her sleep, but went back to it to keep up supply. Occasionally she misses day time feeds when I work at weekends.
All fine until yesterday when no morning milk. Nothing again until bed time, no night milk, no morning milk, a little this lunch time, and now, none again despite her really trying and lots of tears and asking for milk at bed time.
I'm gutted, I was prepared to wean on her terms, not due to my useless boobs.
I am taking fenugreek, and am fit, healthy, well fed, and haven't had any changes that should decrease supply.
How the heck do we cope with this? Boobs now hurt from extended trying to feed...
Any help or experience gratefully received xxxxx
