Before I totally give up...

Can I increase my supply that has dwindled to almost nil?

I have done it all but I dont seem to be getting all that much more.

Have you tried More Milk Plus Special Blend (with Goats Rue) by Motherlove? Its kind of pricey, but I think it works a bit. Also, pump pump pump! It takes your body a few days to respond to pumping. Good luck!

Im taking it now. Another sweet lady here is sending me some Milk Tea and I'll try that too. I do not respond well to the pump though.

Try putting the baby to your breast more often. Three hours is a long stretch for such a new baby. Oatmeal does wonders to increase my supply. I love snacking on homemade oatmeal cookies throughout the day and I really notice a difference.

Do you mind listing what all you have done, just so I don't list off things that you are already doing

Re: Before I totally give up...

I would agree try nursing more often.. when my dd was a newborn I swear she spent all day at the breast for the first 6-8 weeks.. it was hard and sometimes I got stressed and tired.. but after we got over those first few weeks things really became wonderful and nursing was so easy and did not take nearly as long Hang in there you can do it!
