Last week I posted a thread about giving up. I was having milk supply issues and was crushed! I am happy to report that all my hard work has paid off. I am no longer having issues. I feel my milk let down each time. I am getting 5-9oz. total each pumping session and I am able to start making enough to build back up my freezer supply. I couldn't be happier. Knowing that my body is doing what it needs to do has taken my stress away so I know that is helping. I am eating oatmeal every morning for breakfast. I drink a ton of water. I am pumping before bed. My son has been waking up once or twice a night again so I don't need to pump then. Things are back to normal. What a relief. He is 21 weeks old and I was dreading formula. We have given him a little bit of cereal a few times, but my plan is to BF as long as I can.
I was in such despair, but God pulled through. So for those of you out there who were as heartbroken as I was was about losing milk, keep the faith and stick with it. All the hard work will pay off. It took about 10 days of struggling for me to get back to this point.
