Not Pumping Anymore HELP
 
MY DD is 10 months old and I work 3 days a week. At about 6 months (when she started solids) i started my period and i could notice a decrease in my milk supply. I have not had to supplement besides from my freezer stash thank God and was still at least getting a few ounces while at work with the pump but the past month I cannot pump A DROP!!! I dont know whats wrong, i try three times every day I work and nothing comes...my let down is very slow but my dd has been patient with it and the days I'm home she seems satisfied and I dont have to worry about it. However, I am afraid now that I cannot pump anything at work my supply will derease further.

Not sure what to do but any advice is welcome!!!

I have tried fenugreek and am taking it regularly now but that obviously isnt helping!

Thanks in advance!!:goodvibes:

Try Oatmeal. Try a TON of water.

Can you record your LO's cries on your phone and take them to work and play them while you pump? Or bring in something that smells like her.

Also, check your pump to make sure the membranes and all the parts are working really well.

Also, try to power pump on the weekends. Pump 10 minutes, then take a break 10 minutes, then pump 10 minutes etc. Try to see if your body will respond to the pump.

Good luck!!!

Thistle, mothers milk plus or tea. Relax & lots of water. Stress doesn't help.

Domperidone or reglan can help.

I'd say its your pump if you LO isn't having problems at home!

Have you tried hand expressing just to be sure?

ive never hand expessed...not sure how but i guess i could always learn! i just dont have a ton of time at work!

im wondering if its not my pump as well...i have a pump in style and it was brand new when i started using it 9 months ago but havent repaced anything on it...ive also wondered now that my boobs have decreased in size if the sheild are too big...but dont know if that would cause nothing to come out!

thanks everyone for the advice!

You might need to replace the membranes. These are the little white flexible rubber pieces at the bottom of the pump. It protrudes down into the bottle and attaches to the yellow pieces (assuming they are still yellow). You don't need the yellow piece, just the white.

More Milk Plus in tincture or pill form. I swear by it.
