So my son is 4 months old and goes to daycare and I send 4 3 ounce bottles a day and I am having trouble getting enough pumped milk to send, I have gotten lucky and had just enough the last 2 weeks since my freezer stash has depleted, last week his teacher asked if I could increase his bottle amount about by an ounce because he is still hungry some times. I'm gone about 10 hours so I think 12 ounces is enough. I pump in the morning and get 3 ounces and twice at work and I get 3 ounces both times so that's only 9 ounces and he needs 12 ounces. I use fenugreek and mothers milk tea and have used blessed thistle but didn't see any boost in supply, He does wonderful at the breast. I have tried pumping at night but i hardly get anything out. Any suggestions would great I'm getting desperate.
