With my first child my breast milk dried up after only 6 weeks. I was pumping (after feedings as my doctor told me to do after a couple of weeks of attempted breastfeeding that wasn't going to well to increase milk) and feeding like I was told to do by the hospital and doctors. I even tried supplements my doctor prescribed to try and increase flow and this didn't help. Eventually I simply dried up and had to go full formula after supplementing formula for her (I refuse to starve my baby and I was barely extracting 1/2 ounce to feed her and she was a great eater and latched on wonderfully etc.) for a while.
With my second it took only 4 weeks for me to dry up. I had to supplement for her as I was barely extracting any milk again to feed her.
Any advice is accepted and please no bashing on my use of supplemental formula.
Thanks for all the help! =)
