My 7 month old has had a really bad cold for the past week and although he ate less frequently for the first few days, he is back on his normal schedule. Unfortunately, my right breast is barely making milk now. It doesn't really fill up anymore, it feels kind of limp like it has already been emptied out even though DS still gets some milk out... I've been nursing him longer on my right and when he will, i try to have him nurse on it when he's not hungry, also bought some fenugreek today. I am really concerned that i am partially drying up which would break my heart! I dont have a regular pump because i never really leave where i would need to use it, I only have a handheld electric pump and manual one as well, neither of which has ever rendered as much milk as my son gets when he nurses. I have been trying to use that a little to get my right one workin!
Is there anything else i can do? Is my supply drying up?
