LO is 3.5 mos old. I work full-time. I had low supply with DS#1 and now am facing low supply with DD, too! Grr. I am renting a Medela Symphony, pumping 3 times at work, 2 times at home + feeding her. She is still exclusively on BM. Pumping 5 times in 24 hours gets me a whole flippin' 14 oz.
I only get 2-4 oz per session at the pump. I need to make more milk. I am on Go-Lacta + More Milk Plus Special Blend (highest doses of each). drink tons of water, eat TONS, do steel cut oats everyday, etc. Have any of you made really great strides in pumping volume? What did you do to increase your output? I am really struggling here...feel like crying everytime I am done pumping and after 20+ minutes, 3 let-down buttons later...all I get is 2.75 oz. For Pete's sake! This pump is supposed to be the best. And, while I have a session or two of 5 or 6 oz over the last 6 wks or so, it is mostly just mediocre. Please help! Thanks so much.
