Ugh, that sucks...I'm sorry. How often are you pumping and for how long? I looked up on Kellymom and it said to increase supply you should pump 8-10 times per day which seems like a lot but if it works then I'd give it a shot. Also, it said go for 30 minutes or 2-5 minutes after the last drop of milk. Do you massage your breasts while you pump? I would get next to nothing if I didn't do it. Could you maybe stretch his feedings a bit or give just a tad less per bottle until you can catch up? I know you are a more natural methods mama but what about prescription aids to help with supply?

Here's the link to what I was looking at:


Hth and big hugs!
