Hello Im looking for any advice or suggestions i can get on my situation. My son was born almost a month early and spent a week in the NICU til his lungs were fully developed. While he was in there I would bring him supplies of milk every night but the most I ever got was 80ml but did have the engorging breasts but no leaking. Hes 2 months old now and since Ive had him home my supply has gone down to slim to nothing. I dont have that engorge feeling anymore and have to pinch my nipples to even get some drops out for him. I have taken fenugreek tablets and drink Mothers Milk herbal tea and havent seen much of a difference. Im really worried that there is no way for my supply to increase and wont be able to breastfeed which I really want to do. Does any of you Mothers have any ideas or suggestions for this confused and worried Mother? Thanks.
