New Here. EP mom with a newborn
 
My daughter had to be in the NICU right after birth so we started with pumping and its been easier staying that way for us. Shes the youngest of 3 with her oldest sister being 4 and its easier to stop pumping then feeding a newborn.

We recently (started yesterday) have been having a issue. Im not producing NO WHERE near what I was before went from almost 80 ml a pumping session to barely 20 ml. The times havent changed or anything except the night before all this started I went out and forgot to grab my pump but I DID hand express as much as I could.

Any tips? Ideas? Suggestions?

Do you have any pain? Could you have a plugged duct?

No pain just no real production.

How old is your daughter now? Have you checked all of your pump parts? Make sure you don't have a tear in membrane or a hole in tubing. Make sure everything is sealing correctly. I had a similar problem recently that resolved once I took everything apart and put it back together.

membranes can be a real problem.....Might need to look at if you are getting enough water and may need to use supplements like fenugreek or goats rue or moms milk tea
