I've always struggled to have an adequate milk supply. Every time I get it up and we're nursing up a storm it drops again and we're back to supplementing (with EBM) after nursing. It seems like if I'm not stuffing myself full of herbs, pumping 8-12x a day, and eating a million oatmeal cookies I cannot maintain a supply. We've done this over and over in the 5 months I've nursed and, frankly, I'm starting to lose my steam! It's up! It's down. It's up! It's down, etc.
LO has never been an enthusiastic eater but I have noticed that she will eat until content if I have very full breasts. Otherwise, she's not so interested after the first let down is over (even with switch feeding, etc).
Any suggestions? If not, any sympathy/empathy/comiseration would be greatly appreciated! LOL!
