    some days I feel like you did...But give it a couple of days and things usually get better. Just when you think you can`t take it any more a miracle happens.

    My supply dipped right before I started my period, which came at about 2 1/2 months (early, I know). Do you have any PMS symptoms? After I got it, my milk recovered (thank goodness). I didn't expect to start my period so soon while BFing, so it threw me for a loop!

    Good luck to you - sounds like things are going better!

    Doing ok! Thanks! My supply is up somewhat but she's still not nursing aggresively and seems bored shortly after starting to eat. I've been offering her a bottle of expressed breast milk after every feeding and sometimes she takes it and some times she doesn't. I'm still pumping after every feeding or so and taking fenugreek and blessed thistle. I'm taking it all day by day. If she has weak diaper output I try to give her an extra feeding or two.

    I am also giving her 1 whole feeding from a bottle right before she goes to sleep for the night. I know a lot of people would say her weak sucking is from the bottles but I kind of don't care..lol. I need to feel like she's getting nutrition and so far this is working for us right now.
