I have been bf my dd for almost 9mos (yippee). i went back to work when she was 12 wks old. while at work i pump 2 times each day.
originally i was pumping lots and built up a supply of over 100 bags of frozen ebm. during the day i would get 10-12 oz each time i pumped.
time has gone by, now dd is eating solids 3 times a day and is nursing 3 good times a day with lots of little night feedings (we co-sleep). on the weekends, she only nurses.
the problem is that i now only get 3-4 oz each time i pump (if i am lucky). sometimes i only get 2 oz. i still pump in the morning when i wake up and then feed her. i tried fenugreek, i tried mother's milk tea, i drink water, eat oatmeal, etc...
i can accept having to give her a bottle or two of formula each day, i just want to be sure that she is getting enough from me when she nurses. i dont want to give up any time soon. how do i know if she is getting more than 3-4 oz from me when she nurses? i am more worried about my supply now than when she was first born...i guess i will always worry (at least until she weans).
any help you guys can give me is greatly appreciated.
