It was the pump!! I replaced the membranes on the pump after I found the dirt and my output is back up!! Woohoo!!! Thanks for all your ideas and support!
I went back to work two weeks ago and only work p/t. Regardless of the fact that I've been dilligently pumping, and pumping more on days I work, my out put has been decreasing rapidly; it now takes me twice as long to pump about a third what I was pumping two weeks ago. And I think I have to get a second job, which scares me even more.
I have a donee I don't want to cut off, but I'm making less in a day than my three month old eats.
I've been eating my oatmeal, drinking lots of water, yesterday I started using fennel oil and making my mothers milk tea, and today I'll go get some fenugreek.
What else can I do?
I got a suggestion to nursing from only one side at night and pump from the other in the morning, but that didnt make a difference.
I'm pumpin as much as I can and still my out put declines.
I use a madela pump in style, is there a better pump I can consider?
