How do I keep up my supply? I'm pumping every meal and it is just getting to be less and less and my right side has stopped producing. How do I bring it back up without baby?

We never dealt with rsv....so I'm in the dark on why baby won't nurse.

What is baby eating?  Have you tried using saline in his nose and suctioning him well before each feeding?

You need to pump every 2 hrs around the clock until he's back on the breast.

Tons and tons and tons of mucus.  More than you've ever seen in your life, like enough that it dislodged Nathan's tubes in his ears. :(  It's in the nose, the chest, plus there's usually a fever and they are just completely wiped out.

I had to pump. Keep yourself well hydrated. If you get sick it can hurt your supply.

Several things you can do. you can put beastmilkn ur baby nose and suction it out. take it baby in the bathroom and run the shower and suction than try to nurse. Mothers milk tea,fenugreek, staying hydrated, there are cookies with oatmeal and flaxseed that will help increase your supply and I also wrote a post called nursing formula that is good as well.

Formula.
I've been doing saline suctions all day every time I hear any sign of congestion for the past 4 days.

Started pumping every two hours, I'm not getting much but hopefully it will help

Oh, and start feeding with an SNS. Baby still latches, but doesn't have to work for the milk. You get stimulation and start making more. Keep pumping every two hours. Offer what you can pump (remember to keep it to around 24-32oz per day total volume of everything).
