Increase milk supply. **Added more information.
I thought I had dried up, I haven't. What can I take/eat to increase my milk supply?
**About 5 years ago or more, I had a breast reduction. My midwife let me know that because of the reduction I probably wouldn't produce enough milk. The first week of baby's life I did nothing but breastfeed. She seemed satisfied, at the same time she was always on my boob. When we went to way her she had lost more than 10 ounces. She went from 8 10 to 7 3. I know babies lose weight at the beginning just not this much. Midwife suggested we suppliment and pump. So I supplimented 2-3 ounces. I put her on my boob first and then feed her formula. She was gaining weight again. By the fourth week she was drinking more formula than breast milk. I would always put her on my breast first and then when she was done I would give her a bottle. She was eating four ounces of formula at the time. I was also pumping. All I could get when I pumped was 1/2 an ounce, if that much. I started pumping again last night and I'm not even getting that, but I'm not giving up again. I'm going out today to buy some fenugreek. I already have oatmeal. :) I do drink plenty of water and I will continue that. I've also started putting her back to the breast she'll latch on for a little while and then get really fussy, but I'm going to keep trying. I didn't realize it takes months to dry up. Thank you ladies!! :)
She is now 6 weeks old.
