Re: I need help increasing my supply :(

I am so sorry you are having problems! Sooo frustrating! It is normal to get only an ounce of so from both breasts at a pumping session (see this article: Pumping is not indicative of how much your daughter gets from the breast. Have you visited a lactation consultant again since the hospital? I know they have a lot of things they can do - put you on the hospital grade pump for one. It might be really helpful. Fenugreek is supposed to be good for milk supply, as is eating oatmeal. I have also read about taking a "nursing vacation" and spending 2-3 days resting with the baby and bf'ing regularly to increase supply. Here is another article from Kelly mom on low supply
Hope things get easier!!
