Re: Why Does My Milk Dry Up Whe My babies turn 6months Old?!?
PPs have given you some excellent tips!!! However, I completley understand your milk actually drying up early. With both of my kids my milk began to dry up at 3 months pp. I took fenugreek, drank TONS of water, mother's milk, oatmeal, ect. and nothing worked. DD lost a pound and DS hadn't gained anything (not even an ounce) in 4 weeks. With DD I didn't know what to do and ended up putting her on formula. DS I knew what to look for; he didn't have many wet diapers (only 3 or so a day!) and hardly any poopy ones. So I contacted my midwife who put me on domperidone. It was a miracle! I ended up having to take it until we weaned (some women can wean off it). Check out drjacknewman.com it has some excellent info on breastfeeding, increasing supply, etc. Good luck mama!
