when I pump I barely get 1/2 oz out of that breast.
My SO thinks maybe it's because I'm not eating very much. Typical day's food:
I'm trying to drink a lot of water but I don't always succeed.
So any advice?
Well, pump more OR offer more nursing times to baby for starters.
Also, 1/2 oz is not so strange for early postpartum. Pumping = what you pump not what you have or make
Why do you think you are low? Is baby loosing weight or not gaining? No wet or dirty dipes everyday?
ALso, food INTAKE does not = more milk. Calorie and food intake affects QUALITY not QUANTITY. Tell him that ok
Water to thirst- you don't need to overload on fluids to make fluids.
