My milk production has DRASTICALLY dropped in the past week, and before that was going down steadily. For various reasons (I was not at home and was in somewhat of a bind) I could not pump and try to up my supply. She nurses only if there is a lot of milk and she stops once the flow goes down.
And my breasts are taking about 4 hours to make about 2 ounces of milk. I weigh her so I know how much she is getting.
My 7.5 month old gets oatmeal once a day (I try to do 1/4 cup but usually she has just 1/4 of that) and try to give her more watery oatmeal... so she does not get totally dehydrated/
How long can a baby get along on so less... her wight is 18 lds, so according tthe formula she needs anywhere from 36 oz of milk +!!! and I am giving her may be 10 oz a day if I am lucky. She acts hungry and when I give her my breast pulls back angry, and wont eat or drink from a bottle/sippy cup etc., she wants BM and in the original container.
Should I ask for prescription drugs ? How long do they take to work ?
In the meantime what do I do
