I am worried about my milk supply because as of yesterday, my breasts no longer get to the point of that full feeling. They feel pretty empty and soft. I've read this is normal and is most likely that my body has adjusted to my baby's needs, but what if baby is not happy with this?? Last night, he seemed very unhappy with the amount he was getting and I'm afraid that may continue. And what do you do about the growth spurts, if you breasts are feeling soft and empty and it seems they are not happy with what they are getting? Is supplementing the only resolution to this? I certainly don't want baby to starve! I know they mention pumping between sessions but if I did that, there would be nothing left at all for him when he is ready to eat the next time. I just tried pumping after his last feeding and I barely got anything at all.
I do have hypothyroidism and had my levels checked at my 6-week postpartum visit. The doctor had me decrease my medication because at that time I was getting too much hormone (since my meds were increased during pregnancy). I could not have decreased my medication any less than I did, so I don't think my thyroid can be off.
Any advice? I'm worried about this.
