My Mood:
Will I get my supply back?

I have a 3 week old baby and while I'm trying to breastfeed it's just not working so I've been pumping while I wait for a SNS to get here. I was pumping about 4 times a day and getting between 4 and 6 oz per session but was told I needed to pump every 2-3 hours to get my supply where it needs to be. I've been doing that between today and yesterday and it feels like I'm getting less with pumping more. Now I'm lucky to get 2-4 oz per session. After a few days of this will my supply start to increase? I'm hoping I won't have to pump for much longer but if he still won't nurse with the SNS than pumping is what I'll do. I'm just nervous seeing how little I've been getting. Thanks mamas!
