Re: help, very LOW milk production

Man, I agree with everything, that is a FIRST! LOL good luck! Keep that baby nursing and don't give her formula,..BF babies are used to BM and not formula... It messes with their digestion. YUCK!

Re: help, very LOW milk production

All of that. Your dd went through her growth spurts already too, so she doesn't need as much. After 6 months, milk supply changes, boobies feel "less full" and moms worry. Nothing to worry about. Keep up your caloric intake, get sleep, take some EFAs (essential fatty acids, the 3 Omega oils) and lactational herbs as a supplement, keep her nursing as often as she wants, and you'll do fine!

Re: help, very LOW milk production

I was having conflicted feelings also about my milk being low... I thought it might be, but from what I have read... As they get older our milk just comes out alot faster.. Kind of like how most babies move up in bigger holes in bottle nipples, our milk comes out faster in that sense. It used to take DS 30-45 minutes to eat. Now it takes him 5-10 minutes. It's crazy and I feel like I'm not feeding him enough, but he's obviously ok b/c he sleeps well and he is gaining! If she isn't acting hungry still, then I'm sure you are giving her enough mamma!

Re: help, very LOW milk production

I agree with all of that. I do have true low supply and have been taking domperidone since April. I take 40 mg a day and that gives me plenty of milk for Sage. I only feel full at the end of the workday when it has been 8 hours since she last nursed. When I am home on the weekends I never feel full, but she is always happy to nurse and gets the milk out just fine As long as she is happy all is good. I agree, ditch the formula unless she is having dehydration signs.

Re: help, very LOW milk production

Increase your water intake and your Vit B rich foods.

Whole grains, citrus fruits, freen leafy veggies, beans, etc.

Good Luck!
