Thanks. I'll look that up today. Unfortunately she is on a formula/BM mix due to low supply (not a new issue) but I'll keep offering her both until I get some fluids in her! I was able to get 4oz of formula in her last night when I woke her to eat (tried to get her to nurse but she didn't seem to be getting anything out. Not surprising since she had refused to nurse all weekend and I had left my pump at work. ) she nursed for about 4-5 minutes this morning. I'm hoping daycare can get a bottle in her. I restarted the dom and upped the fenugreek so hopefully that helps with my milk supply.
