My 6 month old lost half a pound in 2 weeks, he now weighs less than he did at 4 months. He takes solids well, but is not getting enough breastmilk. I'm pretty sure he is only getting about 2 ounces (1 ounce on each side) each time he nurses (about 5 times a day). I've pumped and only get about an ounce out. And, I've weighed him before and after feedings and he only gains about 2 ounces. How do I increase my supply, because I would really prefer not to have to start him on formula.
