Hello all, I'm praying someone can offer some advice.
My LO is 15 weeks old. I have been BF and supplementing since she was born (supplementing bc I was not producing enough milk). Luckily my LO never had a problem going back and forth from breast to bottle.
In Friday I got my period for the first time. Monday I was out of town for a funeral-I pumped while I was away-but seemed to produce less than normal.
Then Tuesday, my milk was basically gone. I pumped and only got about 1/4 oz from both breasts combined! My LO also won't really nurse bc nothing is coming out so she gets frustrated and stops.
I'm freaking out. I was not ready to stop nursing!
So I have been drinking a ton of water, drinking a Ton of mothers milk tea, taking fenugreek, pumping about every 2 hours (the most I've gotten out of a pump was 1/2 oz) and having my LO nurse as often as possible. I called the lactation consultant at my pediatricians office and she said that's about all I can do. Is that true!? Is there anything else I can do!? How long would it take for me to see if any of this is working? Please help. So sad-Not ready to give up.
