Hi everyone i'm new here. My daughter was born at 26 weeks and 2 days old. she is still in hospital and is now 29 weeks 2 days and doing great so far. I have been pumping since she was born and was doing really well until last weekish. I noticed my milk supply was going down. This weeks it's even worse. I pump every 2-3 hours and pump once in the middle of the night so i get 6-8 pumps a day in. So why is my milk drying up? I was having an awesome increase and then it just out of no where took a huge decrease for no reason. My left breast produces almost nothing now at most 5ml every 2 hours I'm only making about 15- 20 ml every 2 hours when i used to make 30-50 last week.
when i need to pump around the 2 hour mark my breasts ache and feel heavy. I noticed to my breasts are shrinking down to pre pregnancy size. ... supply and demand is obvsiously not working.
