I have been struggling with supply issues for months and I don't understand why. DD is 7 and a half months old and has been a great nurser from the begining. I stay at home with DD and feed on demand which is every two hours day and night. I eat a good diet and drink plenty of fluids. Until recently I have not had to supplement. My milk took forever to come in and due extreme wt loss I was forced to give formula after bf for the first week but then my milk came and we were fine. Things were great until the 4 month check and DD droped from 90th percentile to 75th. Doc said OK she is not too worried yet. I suspected supply was going down as wets were going down (still with in normal limits though) so I tried fenugreek which worked great. At 6 month DD slid to 55 percentile and I was told they are not going to diagnose failure to thrive yet but I need to make sure DD is getting enough. Again I had been watching supply closely and been of and on fenugreek as diapers indicated. Now my DD is not gaining beyond her 18 lbs and I struggle to keep it there as she had lost some weight and I have brought it back though supplement with formula. She is not having wet diapers again she had 3 today so again I give formula but only after at least a half hour on each side of nursing. My DD wakes up all night long to eat ( 7 times in two hours last night) which i only offer the breast until I am so exhausted I gove in and give a bottle. Only then does she sleep well for a couple hours. So far I am lucky My DD would rather have the breast than bottle but I am wearing out. I also have a 4 year old that needs a mommy and my nipples are sore from the marathon nursing sessions I am doing to try and up supply once again. I have no LLL leader or LC in my area to check things out but latch seems fine and DD is happy to be on breast until she can't get enough at end of feedings. Then she tugs and thrashes around breast trying to eek every last drop out (dosnt help the already sore nipples, she has 2 new top teeth ouch!). Oh, and the problem seems to be worse as the evening and night approaches, I seem to make adequate in the mornings/afternoon. Any ideas of what is wrong with me? I am so ready just to quit, the only thing that keeps me trying is the big blue eyes staring back at me and the saddness of losing our special time together.
