Does there come a time where your milk production just won't go up any more?
When I went back to work 3 month ago, I could consistenly pump about 24-26 oz per day. Since then, my supply has dwindled to about 16-18. Throughout this time, I've tried all of the above, and currently am doing them all.
I take 3 Fenugreeks 3 times a day, 2 Blessed Thistles 3 times a day, drink3 cups of Mother's Milk tea, and have upped my pumping to 7 times a day at work (from 5) and nurse 3 times a day. I always drink over 80 oz of water a day, When I very first started Fenugreek, I noticed an increase in milk, but it doesn't seem like it works any more. Does more fenugreek=more milk?
What else can UII try? We had to start supplementing with formula (EEK!) last week because there wasn't enough pumped milk for my DS. I'm in agony over that, which is when I upped my pumping from 5 to 7 times a day. I have an understanding employer, but I think I'm pushing it.. Help? Is there a point where you just can't get your supply back up??
