Yesterday, i was better. She was extremely lethargic, sleepy. We nursed all day, constantly. I was feeling like thank god I can keep her hydrated and give her these antibodies.
Until late afternoon when i realized she hadnt peed at all. Not sure how long- at least 12 hours. I went into panic mode and pushed liquids on her until she peed a dark pee at 7pm and a lighter one at 10:30 pm.
Today she has a fever again, sleepy etc. Nursing non stop but i take short breaks to give her gerber electrolyte drink. One pee today so far.
I feel upset and confused and sad about my milk supply. Ive never had a let down reflex feeling. When she was an infant i had very abundant supply and all was good. Generally at her current age she nurses a few times a day still. Sometimes going all day w/out. But generally 2-4 times a day. But I feel stupid that yesterday I assumed I had enough to hydrate her. And I put her at risk. And now today, as she nurses and nurses and nurses, I am wondering if it's doing anything helpful at all? Will yesterday's marathon have increased supply for today's marathon?
Thank you for reading.
