My son is almost 7 mo and I have become a SAHM 2 weeks ago. I had been working full time and pumping from the time he was 2.5 mo. I used a hospital pump for all but the last month but saw my supply diminish. I tried herbs but my son doesn't tolerate them. He has been supplemented with formula for the last few months and the situation just keeps getting worse - I'm getting less and less and dealing with him impatient for let down. The icing on the cake is he is on a weight watch by the ped because he only gained 2 oz between his 4 & 6 mo check-ups. Dropping him from the 50% to 10%. He did still gain height and HC.
I do have a Medela Pump in Style Advanced, but I'm not sure of the best timing and how to handle getting back on track. My ideal situation would be to have him EBF for his liquid intake - I really want to get rid of the formula if I can.
