Hello everyone, I am new here and know that you can help me if anyone can.
Friday I caught a severe virus and was vomiting and diarhea non stop until today (Monday)... I ensured that I nursed my 8 month old every opportunity in order to get whatever antibodies I could provide and then had to give supplemental food and formula as my milk declined and then VANISHED I am sure it is due to dehydration, yet I am still FAR below where i need to be for his needs. It happened so rapidly that it really threw me off guard.
I have had difficulty with production in the past and used Fenugreek 3 pills X 3 times daily back then as well as pumping I have the Pump in Style Advanced (told it was the best, other than hospital grade) The only problem is I can't pump every 3 hours at work like I was before. I was able to negotiate a great reduction in my work hours and load which includes coming home to feed the natural way once a day, so I really don't want to push the issue too hard with added pumpings as well.
So my question is; is the Fenugreek going to be enough? What can I do other than herbal supplements if anything?
Is this something that will happen everytime I get ill? I am just thankful that he hasn't caught this as well
