I have a 3 month old baby boy. After I started working he got used to the bottle with breast milk and doesn't nurse very often from me. Now I see that my milk is low, I am desperate, I don't want to give up. I don't know what to do, please help me.
I would recommend trying to get your little one to nurse at the breast whenever possible. Having baby nurse at the breast is the best way to stimulate your supply. Even if you aren’t able to get in a full feeding every little bit helps. When pumping it’s best to try and stick as close to his feeding schedule as possible. You should try and pump around the same times that he feeds each day. If you are sticking close to his schedule and still notice a dip in supply, try adding an additional pumping session. Some moms find that they are able to get an extra session in during the evening hours, an hour or two after you put your little one down for the evening.
All the best,
