I am new to BF and have a 4 month old.. He has been exclusively bf since day one.. Lately, it seems he is not fulfilled after a feeding... he seems to be eating every 1.5 - 2 hours in the last few days.. Let me give you some history
He had been eating usually every 2.5 - 3 hours and i have been able to pump out 9-15 oz per day.. In the last week i have been unable to pump out more than 2 oz per day and he seems to be eating so much more now.. I am going from breast to breast trying to feed him and he is getting so frustrated.
I know he has been eating fine in the past and i obviously have been able to feed him since he is already 15 pounds and has gained 8 pounds in his first 4 months. But like i said he seems so unfullied and gets so frustrated now..
Can i possibly dry up? What can i do to get more milk? I have read that there is an herb to take but only take if you are really sure you are not producing enough..
I am drinking fluids - have not changed my diet at all. i am sorry fi this is all mish mash but i am getting very upset at the possibility of having to supplement...
Can someone please help????
