My LO is no 9 weeks old I have been EPing for the last 8 weeks and barely getting 3 oz per pump. I tried taking Reglan to increase my milk supply and it did a little but has dropped off again (still taking it). I have been following the nutrition guide and drinking LOTS of water. My LO is eating almost 4 oz every 2 hours so I am pumping every 2 hours....during the night I pump 2x so that I can get some sleep.
I am starting to feel really overwhelmed because I started back to work on Monday and only see my LO at night but half of our time together I am pumping.... I am able to get a few bottles ahead at night due to him sleeping longer. But am really just making enough to get him through the next day...
What can I do to increase my supply or should I just give up...which is what I am on the verge of doing...
Any advise would be appreciated!!!
