Hi, I have a 3 month old baby that was born early and spent 6 weeks in the nicu. During that time I pumped milk for him while he was in the hospital. I had a great supply for the first 8 weeks could pump 30oz in 24hr
I'm and exclusive pumper because he still gets too tired to BF. Over the past 4 weeks my milk supply has been decreasing to the point that I am only getting about 1oz both b's combined with each pumping session. I have seen a lactation specialist, I did a power pumping boot camp and power pump once a day, eat everything that I can find online that will increase milk supply, had my prolactin levels checked were a little low but not bad, had an ultrasound to check for retained placenta..ect the list goes on and on. I even have a hospital grade pump.
I just don't understand why my milk would decrease so much and everything I have tried to increase it doesn't seem to help.
Looking for suggestions!! Thanks a bunch!
