At what point should I accept that bf may not work for me anymore and try using formula instead? My daughter is 8 months old, and I have been back to work full-time for almost 6 months. Pumping has been an on and off struggle for me most of the 6 months, and now I am at a point where I can barely get 8 oz after 3 sessions of pumping. My daughter sometimes drinks 12 oz while I am at work! I have tried fenugreek and am now taking a prescription to try to rebuild my milk supply, but after 3 days, I have not noticed an increase.
I don't want to give up, but I also do not want to starve my child. Any suggestions?
