I've been nursing my 7-month old son since day one, and have had no problems until recently. My milk supply has been steadily decreasing over the past month. First, the amounts I pumped at work (I work 3 days a week) were no longer enough for my son's feeding. So, I had to supplement the expressed milk with formula.
Currently, I nurse my son 4-5 times a day. Now, after nursing him, he is fussy and hungry sometimes. So, I have been feeding formula to him after nursing him (usually 2 times a day). The other 2-3 times a day, I am able to nurse him and he is full.
So my question is, do you have any suggestions for what I can do to get my milk production back up? Whyhas it gone down? I am not sure why it has dwinddled, since I always nurse my son when I am with him, and pump when I am not with him 3 mornings a week. I try to nurse my son at every feeding and let him get out "all the milk that he can" before I supplement with formula from a bottle.
I recently started taking fenugreek in an attempt to boost my production. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
