Re: Advice PLEASE!
I don't think you "messed things up" permanently- supply responds to demand and you're doing the right thing to get it back up.
- Pump frequently, the more frequently the better!
- Check your pump- the PIS is a good pump but after many months of heavy use it may have lost some suction.
- Herbs: Fenugreek, Blessed Thistle, and oatmeal are all good for increasing supply.
- Drugs: as a last resort, there are prescription drugs which can increase supply as a side-effect. Reglan (available in the US) and Domperidone (Canada, UK) both have additional side-effects and are not right for all women, so consult your midwife or ob before taking either one.
