My daughter never really nursed very long per feeding so I was never really engorged..I think I always jsut kinda produced what she needed. But over the past few months I've just completely dwindled milk production. I don't know if it's stress (my husband is just starting medical school and we just had to move across the country) or if I'm just not drinking and eating enough, but whatever the reason, I just notice that like half the time or more that I nurse her, I don't feel any milk flowing out and she starts to get really frustrated.
She refused a bottle even of my breastmilk from the very first time I ever tried it. So now she uses sippy cups, like for water. And when I put formula in it, she will take like a couple sips and then just turn her head. I mean I can't even get her to drink 4 ounces a day.
I'm really worried she's not getting the calcium she needs. She has solid foods too like yogurt and string cheese

How are her wet diapers. If she isn't getting milk she won't pee. What goes in must come out. I never feel engorged anymore or feel milk flowing, so that is not an indicator. vist www.kellymom.com and join the breastfeeding moms group.
Drink water, eat oat meal, and pump between feeds to initiate more production, but first b sure there is a problem..
