What to do?

I have been trying everything I can with no luck. With my daughter we stopped breastfeeding at 5 1/2 months beacause of low supply issues. I figured - this time I will rent a hospital grade pump and do it that way. Well my son is now 5 months old and I have barely enough mile - well I don't have enough milk. In the last three week I have gone through the 60 something ounces I had frozen and now have no stash. I ordered motherlove more milk special blend and have been taking that - oh and before that fenugreek. Plus about 4-5 hal hour pumping sessions with the medela lactina select and I am getting nowhere. I was thinking of trying the domperidone, but I saw that the fda cautioned against it - so I doon't know if my doc will prescribe it. Any help or ideas would be appreciated. Sorry this is so long.

Have you tried Mother's Milk Tea by Traditional Medicinals? Their tea did wonders with me.
Dear Baby in my Belly, Please come out. Seriously. It's like a 100 degrees here, IN CANADA. Your dad has taken to calling me puffy. I get that you're a dude and the last thing you want to do is leave a place you're going to spend the rest of your life trying to get back into, but enough. Your room is really cool, come out and see it. Sincerely, Love Mummy
