This is the second time in the last 2 months that I have stopped producing milk due to stress in my family. My stepdaughter was taken away from us out of spite and jealousy and we really took it hard. Anyways, I have been trying to gain more milk due to it stopping because of stress. I have contacted la leche, but it has been 2 days and still no reply and the meeting isn't until tomorrow. Has anyone else been through this and gotten their milk back? If so, how? I've been nursing every 2 hours because I'm only producing about 1 oz. on each side and supplementing at night with formula because prior to this she was sleeping all night.

Make sure you are drinking plenty of fluids. There is a tea called "mothers milk" maybe. I forget the exact name, but it is supposed to help with milk supply as well. Nursing every 2 hours is good.
