I'm drying up! ☼ M Due November 25; Clearwater, 528 posts

What in the world!!!! I just pumped for 45 minutes straight (usually only takes me 15) and I barely have an ounce! Yesterday I was pumping 3-4 oz every 2 hours and it's been 4 hours and I only have an ounce... Why!? What can I do to keep my supply going? I've been drinking mothers milk and taking fenugreek since I had DS, and I don't smoke or anything so I don't see why I'm drying up.... this is irritating! I can't breastfeed and now I can't pump... :(

Put him to your breast as much as possible, even if he isn't nursing the skin to skin contact will help. Also- pump with him near you.

Drink tons of water make sure you are also eating good as well.

Why can't you breastfeed?

I haven't tried to breastfeed in 2 or 3 days, I've just been pumping, so good idea! He's never more than 4 ft away from me when I pump!

Quoting ~~My Pet Wussy~~:" Why can't you breastfeed?"


My son just won't. We've been to 5 breastfeeding support meetings and had 3 appointments with a LC and he still won't STAY latched on. Nobody could really give me any input. He latches great but he will only stay latched on for 3-4 seconds and pull away. After awhile he just gets irritated and then there's no way in hell he'll feed. :( He did this before we ever introduced the bottle so I don't know what it could be!
