Hello, I am new here and I need help! I was planning on breastfeeding but didn't workout because I had problems with my nipples... a lactation consultant was helping me but at the end it didn't workout.
In light of that, I bought a Medela in style pump and at the begging I was pumping only 2-3 times a day and I was getting about 4-5 ounces a session.... now I only get barely 1 ounce. I'm 5 weeks PP and I really need more milk so I don't have to supplement with formula that much. 3 days ago I started pumping more, about 5-6 times a day BUT I have no luck... still only one ounce. Not sure why I went from 4-5 ounces to barely 1??
What can I do?
Thank you so much for your input!!!!!
