I had my son little over two weeks ago and I've noticed when I go to pump I'm not even making half of what I was even three days ago. I try to pump at least 3x a day and was trying to not let my milk adjust after engorgement so I can get a good milk stock pile going in my freezer and so I would have an easier time with milk donation if I decided to do it, which now it's looking like I won't be able to :( I wen from getting 6 oz from each breast to getting 3 oz from each breast.
It has been a sudden change as I was having no issues on Saturday but yesterday and today its like woah where'd my milk go?! I have been giving baby a breast milk bottle when he goes down the first time for the night but he nurses throughout the night and then all of the day. He hasn't had an increase in feedings or amount so I don't know what the deal is. I'm supper bummed that I haven't been able to get much in a pumping session :( Should I start taking supplements to help boost my supply?
