I am currently in the hospital with my 3 week old son. He was very ill and was running a fever of 102 and greater for 3 days. We have finally got ahold of the fever but he isn't feeling great still. He was EBF but he hasn't nursed in 4 days. He refuses to latch on. I have been pumping and giving him breastmilk in a bottle. Before he got real sick I was producing 3 to 4 ounces every 3 to 4 hours. For some reason my supply has plummeted since we have been here. I'm only getting about 1 1/2 oz every 3 hours. I have been trying to pump every hour and I can accumulate more milk that way over 3 hours but still no more than 2 1/2 oz. Idk what to do. Exspecially from a hospital room. Any ideas? I have tryed supplementing after breastmilk but it made him very sick. His little stomach couldn't handle it. It made him constipated and made him spit up, A LOT! What can I do to help my supply?
