I recently, accidentally, zapped my milk production by not drinking enough water. By the time I realized that was the problem, the damage was done. I have only done this once before and it came back in a couple of days. I'm on the second day and I am just stressed and worried, and of course this all happens at the same time my mother has a full hysterectomy and my grandmother ends up in the hospital.
Okay, so anyway, i'm a little worried because I just don't seem to be making enough milk for my infant, she is 3 months, she is peeing enough, so I know that she is hydrated. However, my milk will come out for a minute and the next thing I know she is fussing at the breast and when I squeeze, just drips come out. I usually have an ABUNDANT amount of milk and pump a lot too, but a stopped pumping a couple of weeks ago when this happened once before. WHICH, now that I realize how supply and demand works, I realize I shouldn't have stopped pumping. I'm just very frustrated because I know that she is hungry and when it doesn't come out enough, she freaks out and fusses. Yesterday (when my mom had surgery) I had to be at the hospital but I came home every two hours to feed, but my husband had to supplement with a bottle (pumped breast milk). Now, I don't think she is sucking hard enough to pull the milk out and it's frustrating because I don't want her to be hungry or sit and scream either. I know that giving her a bottle just adds to the problem, but she gets so upset that it's not coming out as easily as when I had a ton of milk. I just don't know what to do! Someone please help!
