I think I may have given my baby too much formula because my supply is getting really low and I don't have enough BM to fill her up anymore. What can I do to make my milk come back? HELP!!

Hi there!

There are several things you can do to bring back your supply. First of all, breast feeding is supply and demand so the more you BF, the more milk you will make. If you have a pump and can pump between feeds this will help to increase your supply.

There are also supplements that you can take and even some meds your doctor can prescribe. I did a search on the board and found this post with a ton of suggestions - I hope it helps!

Nurse & pump more. I was pumping every 2-3 hours for the first 4 months to keep my milk supply up when I started supplmenting. You HAVE to keep the breasts stimulated as frequently as possible.

Start nursing more and pump if you need to. Your supply will go up if you nurse more. We used an SNS for the first 3 months to try and keep my supply up. Now I am not worried about it as Natalie wants to bf more than take a bottle.
