I'm new to this forum. Would like some advise and here is my story..
Have been bf my dd 6 mths now.
Sadly to say that i notice my milk supply has drop tremendously around the 3rd mth. Sad
Used to be able to pump 4oz on my left n 3oz on my right. Now merely 3 oz combined. Anyway, i stop expressing around the 7th wk coz doc says the baby needs to stimulate the breast in order to have more milk. But in my case, it seems to do the reverse.
On the 4th mth, i started on domperidone 1tablet(10mg) 3x a day. I can see there was an increased in my supply(dd wake up for feed every 2 1/2 -3hrs fpr nit feed) till 1mth ago, i had block ducts for 3 consecutive wks. Thats when my supply went down again (now feed every 1-1/2 hrs at nit), till now, i'm back to only being able to pump about 3oz. My dd is taking 5oz every 31/2 hrs. FYI, i bf direct most of the time. Cup feed twice a day.
My dd birth weight 3.145kg.
I start her on semi solids when dd was 5mth.
Any other advise to increase milk supply appreciated.
