I might be venting and looking for sympathy more than advice here, but I'm kind of freaked out. I last nursed my son around 4:30, and just went to put him to bed at 7:00, but when I was nursing him, he acted like he wasn't getting anything. I tried to express something with my fingers to see what was going on, and could barely raise a few drops. I'm not sure he's really tired right now because he took a late nap, so I'm going to let him stay up another half hour and try again. All the stored milk I have is frozen solid, so I might have to try some formula and see if he'll take it--he hasn't accepted formula before, though, and won't take a bottle even of EBM from me. I did feed him dinner, so it's not like he's starving...he just hasn't gone to bed without nursing or a bottle before. Ack! I hate how my milk supply is drying up!!!Answer Question
You probably aren't really drying up. As the baby gets older your supply changes and the milk might not be as easy to express. Drying up takes a lot longer than a few hours.
