breastfeeding milk supply

  • I took my baby to Dr. and she lost 1.5 lbs and 1 month old.  now they are having me supplement, how do I get back to all breast feeding?  why is she not getting all the milk after she is done eating, there is still milk when I pump...

  • I would meet with a lactation consultant asap. One and a half pounds is a pretty big loss for a one month old. My best advice after meeting with a LC would be to nurse, nurse, and nurse some more. Also, make sure she is nursing long enough to get the hind milk from each breast. It has the most fat.
