Question I think I have a problem

My milk supply went down for several reasons and I had to give Jacy a couple bottles a day. Now I am trying to get back into exclusively bfing again. Today I didn't give her a bottle and she didn't have one wet diaper as of 2:00 this afternoon! No pee all day! Should I still give her a bottle or two a day until I have more milk? She is 9 months old. I have been working on getting my supply back up but it is not enough yet.....

Nurse as much as you can. Have her nurse before any bottle. If that doesn't seem like it's enough then I would go ahead with a bottle. Is there an LC you can get to to do a weight check, etc? I would try to get to one.
nak, sorry about those typos

I would nurse all day if you can! The constant stimulation will get your supply back up. If she still seems hungry, give her a bottle between nursing.

Mama
I don't know if it's possible for you to do this but if it were me I'd try to pump with a high quality grade pump like the Lactina or at least a Pump in Style. That way you could know better how much you're producing and it would stimulate your production. Even if you need to rent a Lactina I'd think it would be worth it. That pump did incredible things for my supply!! : )

ITA. BF her before you give the bottle...if she hasn't had a wet dipe, bf her and then give a bottle...you don't want her to get dehydrated. Nurse lots!!! and pump lots! lol

GL mama!
