  • You can try pumping on the one that isn't getting any. This can make it come back without affecting how your baby eats. Always make sure to alternate breasts everytime you feed. (not that you weren't before, but just a reminder.)

  • Jazak is right on her comment & another thing you can do is drink plenty of water! I cant express enough on how important your water intake is.

  • i agree with the above! When i had milk supply issues i took fenugreek, a natural herb you can get at a natural food store and it totally worked after a week. take 3 pills 3 times daily and drink LOTS!

  • You might have a breast infection. I would call you dr's nurse and just ask. It never hurts to ask. I wasnt able to breast feed for longer than a week, but my friend constantly got breast infections in one of her breasts.
