I was REALLY sick over the weekend, I tried to pump so my husband could feed the baby while i was unavailable (puking!!), but on two occasions was only able to get 4 oz. ( My son is 6 mo and eats 6-8oz a feeding) Since then my son has seemed unsatisfied and cranky after feeding and i have had to pull from the freezer to fill him up. I tried pumping again and only got 5 oz. it is strange because I am usually an over producer. I have a back up supply but am worried i will run through it quickly at this rate.
I plan on using a lactation tea that i had when he was a newborn. I have also heard of "power pumping" I guess you just pump every 10 min after your baby goes to sleep for 1 hour. If you do this every night for a week it is supposed to increase your supply.
I was just hoping that i could get some other suggestions/comments on the power pumping or other ways people have increased their supply after a situation like this.
