I think I have a problem
My milk supply went down for several reasons and I had to give Jacy a couple bottles a day. Now I am trying to get back into exclusively bfing again. Today I didn't give her a bottle and she didn't have one wet diaper as of 2:00 this afternoon! No pee all day! Should I still give her a bottle or two a day until I have more milk? She is 9 months old. I have been working on getting my supply back up but it is not enough yet.....:headscratch:

Re: I think I have a problem
Nurse as much as you can. Have her nurse before any bottle. If that doesn't seem like it's enough then I would go ahead with a bottle. Is there an LC you can get to to do a weight check, etc? I would try to get to one.
nak, sorry about those typos

I would nurse all day if you can! The constant stimulation will get your supply back up. If she still seems hungry, give her a bottle between nursing.

I don't know if it's possible for you to do this but if it were me I'd try to pump with a high quality grade pump like the Lactina or at least a Pump in Style. That way you could know better how much you're producing and it would stimulate your production. Even if you need to rent a Lactina I'd think it would be worth it. That pump did incredible things for my supply!! : )
