I am a stay at home mom, and my baby never truly latched on properly. I have seen lactation consultants, and we just all agreed, that it might be best for me to just pump. I have a Medela swing pump. I used to get 16 oz. in the morning, but recently, I am getting between 7.5-10 oz. My milk supply has gone down from about 40 oz per day to 28-29 oz. Is this normal? How do I get my supply back up? I have been pumping more often trying to get it back up, but so far, I haven't had much luck. Does anyone know what might be causing this? I don't want to switch, or supplement my baby (4 m) with any formula. Any suggestions would be so appreciated.
