    Default Low Milk Production

    My milk production has never been great, but it's been adequate so far (been supplementing with formula) until last week when I caught a stomach virus and since then I've been struggling to get the production to increase again. I've been taking Fenugreek supplements, but so far they haven't really helped. I've been pumping from day one because my baby had problems latching on. Is there anything I can do, or is it a lost cause?

    I'm almost certain it's not a lost cause. I will put a few resources below that you may find helpful - let us know if they are.

    If you get a chance, you can call a leader too - they might prove very helpful being on the phone! (link to find one locally found below)

    Do you really have low supply

    Often times moms supplement when they think baby isn't getting enough - when infact they are - here's some links to help you determine that. (depending on childs age)

    Is baby getting enough:
    For under 6 weeks
    For over 6 weeks

    I am also going to assume you'd like to get baby off the supplements -
    here's a resource that may help you with that

    Here's a little something that might have something helpful as well, regarding 'when mom is sick'.
