I've been successfully nursing my son for seven months-- and loving every day of it. However, this week, I unfortunately got slammed with gastroenteritis (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea). My mom took my son overnight because my husband (who was also sick) and I were too zapped of energy to watch our curious little crawler.
Being away from my son (although I was pumping) and being dehydrated severely diminished my milk supply. I've been nursing as much as he'll let me, and double pumping for about 10 minutes several times a day.... I'm only making a tiny bit of milk. (I've always had more than enough before). I'm not ready to wean!
Any suggestions on increasing my supply?
