Have you seen or talked to a lactation consultant?

Try to avoid supplementing whenever possible.
I can try pumping, but I can squeeze milk out by hand when I'm checking to see if I have anything coming out. It comes out in a thin stream. Also, I haven't felt let down in about 2 months. Is that bad?

I'll try fenugreek again. It makes dd fussy, but I'll try in it conjunction to the domperidone.

I hate supplementing,but I hate seeing her cry in hunger and if she's not latching on, I don't know his else to get her fed.
