I'm about to give up!!!

My supply will not increase!  I'm taking more milk plus tablets, eating oatmeal for breakfast, drinking mother's milk tea and my supply will not increase.  What the heck?!

Re: I'm about to give up!!!

  • This is my first post on here, so please forgive me if its been said.  The only thing that ever worked for me was good old fashioned supply and demand.  It was around 10 months that I went through a "dry spell" beucase my DD started eating less frequently.  The only thing that worked was to kick my body into high gear by tricking it into thinking it was a growth spurt time by nursing and/or pumping every 1-2 hours.
  • I agree with the PP, nurse and pump, nurse and pump it will come back, don't give up
  • Loading the player...
  • ditto, pps! you're doing great to have made it this far!

    try to relax :) know that your body will produce what is needed and follow the others' advice.

  • Agree with PPs and remember, your DC is now 10 mths and eating more solids most likely so your DC is not nursing as often.  Drink TONS of water and nurse and pump to trick your body if you need too.  Good luck!
    Our kids are 19mths apart and we LOVE it!!
