Re: No milk left because DD ate for 3 hours
Growth spurts are hard You are always making milk even as its being removed so your breasts as never truly "empty" That being said I was in your shoes when I first turned to this website I thought I'd run out of milk and my ds was crying and hungry. My breasts were sore and I was so exhausted. Formula looked so tempting but I wasn't ready to give up. I read that oatmeal helps boost your supply so I ran to the kitchen and made a big bowl. I HATE oatmeal but I chowed down like it was my last meal. It worked. Within minutes my breasts were tingling. I tried feeding my son again and he finally calmed down. I calmed down. All was good in our little world again. So, eat your oats, drink plenty of water, learn to nurse lying down so you can get some rest. This too shall pass.
