Thread: Very low supply and need to drastically increase

    Exclamation Very low supply and need to drastically increase

    My baby is 12 weeks old and I was doing an excellent job EBF until I fell very very sick. My son was prescribed a special supplement for gas but due to my illness that has just went away,my supply is very low. I've been told that even if I'm not producing very much at all,I can still boost it to a large amount to go back to exclusively breastfeeding my son again. Tips? Thank you

    Welcome to the forum! I'm sorry you got so sick.

    Some questions for you:
    - How much supplemental formula or pumped milk are you using right now? (Number of oz or ml per feeding, and number of oz or ml in a 24 hour period)
    - How often does your baby nurse? (Number of nursing sessions per 24 hour period)
    - How do you know your supply is low?

    It is possible, it may be a lot of work for a while but be tough and hang in there.
