I have EBFed for 4 months with no issues and now I have barely no milk..my baby wasnt peeing and was screaming after feeding so i started taking fenugreek and breastfed every hour for 3 days, i still take the fenugreen 2 pills 3x a day but i still have barely any milk so my baby is on mostly formula threw out the day..what could be wrong and is it possible to reverse it? I tried so hard,feeding EVERY hour day and night for 3 days with fenugreek and nothing changed..
also she spits up formula seriously 20 times a day give or take a few...is there a formula that will help with this until i can get my milk back up???

Call her pediatrician and talk to them about the formula issues. If she wasn't peeing then you weren't producing enough milk. Sometimes it happens. You could go to your regular doctor and tell them about your milk supply issues. It's possible that are one of the many women that can't produce/sustain a milk supply for long.

Have you talked to someone from LLL in your area? http://www.drjacknewman.com/ is also a good resource. It has info on the SNS too.
