hi moms out there. my LO is now 3 months & 3 weeks. since i go back to work 1 month ago i have to pump milk 3 times a day so that LO can be fed by breastmilk while im working. it was really a hard work since i can only pump 2-3 oz/ pump. sometimes caregiver must give 1 formula a day while im away. but last week i was having colds and i can really feel that my supply has gone. wearing mask, i really force my LO to nurse but she was not satisfied. since i dont want to take any meds i just took 2 gms of vit c a day til i was fine. now my supply is very low, only 1 oz per pump and bby doesnt want to nurse when she's so hungry or else she will ask formula after nursing.
what will i do? i am really upset beacause i know my milk is what she needs and i want to give her the best. by the way my pump is manual. does electric pump can help this situation?
i will appreciate your comment on this post. thank you
