I'm really getting frustrated that my son is now seven months and we're STILL having low milk supply issues. It seems to happen right around his birthday each month. Sometimes it's accompanied by my period, but other times my supply just gets low for no reason whatsoever. Fenugreek doesn't work... I eat oatmeal by default every morning, and I drink a hell of a lot of water. Not only is my supply low, but when my son latches on, my let-down reflux doesn't happen until at least 5-10 mins later, which results in him constantly pulling off and screaming, tears rolling down his face, tears rolling down MY face...it's just rediculously frustrating. I keep telling myself "I can't give up, I've come so far!" and I don't want to stop breastfeeding, but I don't want my son to starve either. Twice today I couldn't get the let-down to happen, so I gave him formula and pumped the little bit of milk that I had in there (about three oz). A friend of mine mentioned something about asking my OB about some kind of drug that increases my supply, so I sent her an email, I haven't heard back. Prior to my low supply, I had major issues with yeast overgrowth on my nipples for no apparent reason whatsoever. After two rounds of diflucan and probiotics, I managed to get rid of that, and now this. I'm seriously going to loose my mind pumping every three hours. I also want to mention that about a week and a half ago I decided not to wake my son for a 5am feeding anymore. He's been sleeping about 12hrs from 8pm to 8am give or take, and as a result he nurses only about five times a day. I would pump at 11pm and mix the milk that I've pumped into his food during the day. Now, I'm wondering if dropping that feeding has affected my supply. I keep blaming myself, but am I really to blame, or are my hormones screwed up in some way? Any advice?
