Good job mama!
I eat a lot of oatmeal, mostly because I love it. I've also tried Fenugreek. It seemed to help when I noticed my supply dipping due to getting my 1st period. I also added a pumping session before bed too.

Fenugreek 4 capsules 3x/day is what i've taken with no side effects but i believe complete and effective removal is the key. After nursing i use a hospital grade pump to ensure complete removal. i've always had problems with supply and this being my 3rd child am finally successful - he's 5 weeks old. i truly believe it's due to the pump i have.

I agree with the oatmeal idea. I felt like my milk was slowing so I started having oatmeal for breakfast and drinking TONS of water. My water trick is to fill a jug of water and set the oven timer for one hour. in that hour my water has to be gone. Works for me. Also, I take Fenugreek but I'm not sure which of my "tricks" is doing the job. Good luck and hang in there!!
