I am hoping for any one else's experience with this. (And I'm really hoping I'm not the only one....) DD is 4 weeks old. She has been breastfeeding and I've been pumping to give expressed milk at times, too. I have always had lots of milk (3-4 oz total per pump). However, twice, I have had diminishing milk supply. The first time I just thought I wasn't pumping long enough on times DD wasn't also breastfeeding (only made ~2oz). Well, it's happening again, but this time, my right breast is not even putting out enough milk to cover the bottom of the medela bottle on the pump. Left is putting out 1 oz. After some reflection, I have noticed both times my milk diminished has followed days of hormone fluctuations with menopause-like hot flashes. Has anyone else had this happen?
Secondly, I was curious if anyone has ever had their infant have such reflux that the pediatrician recommended using Alimentum for 24 hours to see if the problem corrects itself. If so, what was your experience? I am trying it, but I am also desperate to be able to feed breastmilk to DD also.
Thanks in advance. I appreciate your experience and advice.
