First of all, make sure you know you have a low supply. Pumping output means nothing because pumps are not babies and cannot suck as effectively. Secondly, know that babies go through many growth spurts and may be fussy at the breast and appear hungry even after just eating. It's totally normal. The best thing for a good supply are to keep hydrated and nurse on demand. Nursing is supply and demand so the more baby nurses the more your body will make.
In the meantime, you can try FENUGREEK. Take 3 tablets 2-3 times daily and continuing to drink plenty of water and nurse and it will increase your supply.
I hope this was helpful and encourage you to contact your local La Leche League chapter for personal help and advice, all free. www.llli.org
