I am! It's getting better. I wasn't getting much at first and have been steadily getting around 10-12 oz a day now. I did one round of fenugreek back in December and I think it actually depleted my supply. I just started taking it again this week and I also started eating lactation cookies and my supply is already increasing. I went from getting 2 oz after pumping for 30 minutes and now I'm getting 3-4 oz for 15-30 minutes of pumping. I use a medela double electric pump. I do have the manual one and I was using that at night, but I've started using the electric one again because I'm lazy lol.

It's still a pain in the butt, but now that I'm having more success I'm feeling better about it. I need to produce 38 oz to feed both of them for 24 hours, so hopefully I'll get there!
