I'm nursing my second child, she' s 4 months old, I had no problems with my first and was able to nurse him for 14 months (I got pregnant and lost my milk). I've had mild issues the entire time this time though. First with bleeding and latch, now with supply. I was managing to produce just enough to satisfy her (though not always fill her) until I got sick last week. Now I'm producing almost no milk and my freezer stash is gone so I am having to supplement with formula :(
I've been taking 12 fenugreek pills a day for the past month or so, I drink a ton of water and I eat oatmeal every day. I nurse every 2 hours (switching sides back and forth every few minutes) and all through the night. Today I started trying to pump after nursing to see if I can stimulate production but it's really difficult because she is so fussy I can rarely put her down to pump.
I feel like no matter what I do my body wont make the milk my baby needs. I've talked to 3 separate LLL leaders and none have been able to suggest anything different. I fear I am quickly losing this battle.
