I need advice as I'm not sure what to do.
So this happens a few times a day: my baby will drain both of my breasts until there is nothing left. She gets frustrated and after checking I can tell there is no more milk coming out. In other words, my supply does not meet the demand. When this happens, I have no choice but to give her a bottle .
What do I do at this point?
A few times a day, after nursing, I pump for 2 minutes on each side, is that not sufficient to increase supply? Should I pump after every time I nurse her and increase the time?
I also drink one cup of mothers milk tea per day.
Is there anything else I can do to meet my babys demands?
I use a nipple shield because my nipples are completely flat (have tried without to no avail). I know this can negatively affect my supply but there is really nothing to latch onto when it comes to my nipples.
Thank you so much in advance for your help!
