I am a first time mom with a 3 week old baby girl. Since I brought her home from the hospital I have been breastfeeding but at her two week check up her weight was surprisingly very low and I was forced to supplement just to keep her healthly. No matter how often I pump I can (on a good day) only get about a half ounce on each side. My child can easily finish a 4-5 ounce bottle each feeding. My body just won't produce enough milk. In the begining everything was fine and I would get full fast and produce atleast 2 ounces a side; I don't understand what could have caused the sudden decrease in supply. It's getting bad now that when I put the pump on now I don't get anything and it hurts really bad. I get sudden sharp needle like pains in my breast the come and go often.
I am worried I am drying up and would not be able to feed again unless this problem is fixed soon.
please anyone that can help me at all.... HELP!
