Can I get my supply back?

My DD is 5 mos. and at her 4 month she was 5% for weight. Doctor said to supplement after breast with bottle. Well, she would drink 6 to 8 oz after giving both breasts and was a happy little clam. Over the month I just started giving bottle because I didn't want to fuss with breast and bottle. Now I really miss the bonding breastfeeding provides. This is my last little one and I am not ready to stop. Sunday night I gave her breast in bed and she was just using them to pacify (normally she will suck her thumb). I missed that night time feeding. I still have a little milk. What should I do to get my supply up enough to do night and morning feeds?

If you still have milk fenugreek should work, it really helped me out. I took 2 capsules 2 or 3 times a day for 2 - 3 days. You can get it at a healthfood store for $7-10, and its safe. It is what they use to artificially flavor maple syrup (it will make your pee smell like maple syrup too)

its supply and demand. The more you nurse the more you make. Unfortunatly supplementing creates a downward spiral... so start offering the boob more.
