Re: Please Help, Im at the end of my rope...
I don't really have any advice, but wanted to give you hugs.
I don't know why your supply would just dry up like that if thats what is happening. With dd1 I was great at pumping at first, then didn't for a while and when I tried to go back to it I would only get about 10mL. But I know my dd still got milk when she nursed--she was gaining weight and had wet diapers and all that. Pumping is not an indication of milk supply, so I would pay more attention to what your lo is doing.
Oh, and oatmeal is supposed to help increase supply. And make sure you are getting enough calories yourself.
Hang in there mama!!!
