A Voluminous Drop

Josiah's labs keep coming back normal. My milk supply keeps dropping. I started to supplement him last night. Each time I pump, I get less and less milk. I don't know now if my milk supply started dropping and made Josiah lose weight or if the stress has made my milk supply fall. Either way, despite the galactagogues, I'm losing my milk.

Are they testing you at all? Has anybody suggested a prescription of Reglan for you? It's a reflux/stomach medication that has the side effect of increasing milk production in lactating females. It might be worth a try, if only to get you past the stress. My personal feeling is that the pumping itself is a stress.

Here's hoping you can re-establish supply. I'm so sorry you are going through this.

We did talk about reglan, and went with the herbal stuff first. I may ask the doc for a prescription.
