My son was in the NICU when he was born, and was not able to nurse. I've been pumping since he was born, and my milk supply was great for a while. I used to pump about 8 ounces every 3 hours.
My baby boy is now three months old, and my milk is almost gone. In the morning, I can pump about 2.5 ounces from each breast. I try to pump every 3 hours after that, but am only able to get about one ounce (total) every three hours. My son is eating about 5-6 ounces every 3-4 hours, so I've had to start giving him formula. I feel so disappointed.
I've been drinking water, eating more oatmeal than I ever imagined I could, and I've tried fenugreek. Nothing is working!
I bought the Medela Pump in Style Advance pump the other day, and I'm still not seeing a difference. I just want my milk back, and to not have to give him any more formula. I don't know what to do. I feel like nothing is going to work, but I don't want to give up.
