Hi, I am a new mother of a baby boy who is now 4 1/2 weeks old. At first I was able to produce enough breast milk for his demand. Now I am not producing enough. I have only used the breast pump because I have inverted nipples. He was able to latch on once but it really really hurt.
I have been pumping every 3 hours and my supply has decreased, but his demand has increased. He eats every 2-3 hours and is requiring 4 + oz. When I pump I only get 3 oz if I am lucky. How can I increase my milk production?
I am also going back to work in a week or two. I want to be able to pump enough for the whole day. Any help would be appreciated.
