My Mood:
A couple things that helped my supply were eating adequate protein and using a manual pump. Maybe just a few minutes with the hand pump would get you more hind milk and more empty so your body is signaled to make more. I felt like I could get a little more with my Medela Harmony but of course couldn't EP with it. Also, your LC prob told you this, but are you pumping a couple minutes extra after the milk stops? That helped me too. I had to EP three months and it is not easy but it is possible. You are doing a lot to help him. I know the feeling of wanting to provide 100% breast milk, but remember every drop helps!! Even if he does get a little formula here or there, you are still doing so much good for him!
