I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this question but I think it fits! I've posted a few times on other forums about my low milk supply. I work very long hours and was informed that the amount of time I am separated from my baby/how many bottles she's taking vs. how many times she's able to actually nurse is a contributing factor to why my supply is so low. I was at the point of pumping a total of 7 times (4x at work, 1x on commute to work, 1x after baby went to sleep and 1x in the middle of the night by setting an alarm). I wasn't getting sleep and was beyond stressed out so I made the decision to combo feed. I got down to pumping only 2x per day, both at work. Around the same time, my baby went through a phase of becoming very distracted while eating whether it was bottle or breast and that further decreased my supply. She also just dropped her final night feed in the last week and a half and is now sleeping 7:30p-7am. All of that combined and my supply is now so low that I am lucky to get 1 ounce per side when pumping.
I am not ready to stop nursing and am looking for advice/help on what to do to increase my supply. Do I just start adding pumping sessions back in? Getting her to nurse is difficult but not impossible so I can try to add more nursing sessions when with her. How often would you suggest pumping and do you think it is necessary to add back in a middle of the night pumping?
Thanks so much in advance for any advice you can offer!!
