My baby is 10 weeks old and the last few weeks I have noticed my breast milk isn’t filling her up. I have noticed I am not pumping as much either. I have tried increasing water, eating more salmon, drinking fenegreek and milk thistle supplements, still not producing enough. In the first few months I was producing so much I was able to get a back up freezer supply, but now that is almost gone. We have started supplementing with formula but I wasn’t wanting to do that this early.
Here is what my feeding day looks like:
- Breast feeding about 8 times a day. (Cluster feeding in the evening)
- pumping 2-3 Times a day after feeding (only getting about 1-2 ounces, use to get 3-4)
- needing to supplement formula after feeding (about 2 ounces 2-3 Times a day)
What can I do to increase my supply? Could it just be she is eating more lately? I would like to continue breast feeding but am worried I am drying up.
Thanks for your help!
