I have always had a semi low milk supply. DS is a slow gainer and even now at 18mo he doesn't eat solids very well. He is constantly moving and never stops even when nursing, he wiggles and kicks and stands.
2 weeks ago he got Hand, Foot and Mouth and went on a short strike, about 3 days. I have also been trying to lose weight by eating healthier, low fat, more veggies and swimming laps. Could these two things have lowered my supply?
But now my milk is at almost zero! His wet diapers are not as wet as before. I am worried he will now lose weight which he just can't really afford.
I have been eating tons of oatmeal and drinking tons of water. I haven't been sleeping well. He nurses the usual times, all night long, morning at wakeing, mid morning, at nap, mid afternoon and then to sleep. But not getting much I can tell.
What happend to my milk and how do I help get it going again?
