I started taking Fenugreek today.
I went back to work. I had 9oz pumped (It took me 3 days to get that... Seriously). I worked a 5-hour shift... He drank 7oz. =( And while I was working, I only got 2oz.
That's not going to fly.
And not only can I not afford (Well, I don't WANT to afford) formula, I reallyyy don't want to supplement. I've been doing so good only BFing.
I hope this works.
BTW, reading kellymom.com makes me feel a lot better about my body. She said something like babies that are strictly breastfed, the moms will only be able to pump 1/2-2oz per pumping, for both breasts combined. Now I don't feel so broken because I usually get 2-3oz from both. The website said it could take 2-3 pumpings to get enough built up for one feeding.
I still need to up my supply though, at least until I get a strong backstock built up.
I've only got 3 bottles made up for tomorrow and I work for 8 hours so I know supplementing will happen at some point this week. Poo. We have one can of Newborn that Enfamil sent us that I saved just in case, so hopefully we only need to tap into that once or twice.
