Okay so my supply has taken a huge dip down while I'm at work pumping. I have gone thru (as of today) my entire freezer stash of milk I had saved up from my oversupply days. I've been back to work for 5 weeks now (baby is 12 weeks) and I went from making enough for his day (he drinks about 12/13oz at daycare) to making 4 oz all day. I have an appointment with tw doctor thursday to see if it's a thyroid problem (I've been having other symptoms such as dizziness and random weight gain) sooooo anyways I currently need to supplement formula till I can figure out how to fix this issue. How do I choose what kind of formula there are so many different kinds.
:( and please if you haw any clues to how I can get my supply up please please let me know! I'm drinking tons of water, eating oatmeal, lactation cookies, pumping every 2 hours for 20-30 mins, tried the mothers milk tea, let him feed as much as he wants on breast at night. I currently have an order in amazon for the fenugreek which should be here soon but man it's depressing me so badly that I am failing at this and can't feed my baby :(
