I've suddenly seemed to lose my milk - my son attempts to suckle but gets nothing then pulls away and fusses. I had to offer him bottles of pumped milk today. I don't have much left though and I'll have to supplement with formula if I can't fix my problem.
Did I do something to lose my supply or should I do something more? I drink lots of water every day, usually a full glass at each feeding he takes. I also pump throughout the day - I started saving my milk this week for him when I go back to work. I've been pumping since he was born, just to increase my supply. I also took Fenugreek until about a week ago, and for a couple of weeks, I used Goat's Rue. I really don't want to stop breastfeeding yet...please help!
