My 6 week old girl never took to my breast...so, for 6 weeks now, I have been pumping multiple times a day, everyday. It really is a bit daunting...but worth it. However, as we become more active, trying to get things done, I have let to much time go between pumpings. My production has gone down dramaticlly. On top of it, I am one of the few lucky moms who started the period from HELL, and only 6 weeks after having her. I am told that that can contribute to poor production. Does anyone know how to build up my production again? I have even tried staying home for three days straight and pumping every hour. It helped a little bit, but not enough. I have had to start supplimenting formula in between breastmilk. It sucks, I am even a little bit depressed over it.
