Day 3 of our nursing sabbatical. I'm looking to see an increase in my day's total supply. Natalie's weight took a tiny dip and I won't let her lose weight just to keep her EBF. If I don't see a good increase in my output by tomorrow I will bump my supplement back up and try again in a couple weeks. I am trying to offer her both breasts at least twice at every feeding. I'm aiming for a second letdown. Even if she only gets a tiny bit more. I want my breasts to be thoroughly emptied no matter how depressing that empty feeling is. I know that them feeling completely empty and deflated is the trick to making more milk and that feeling full is really not the feeling I should be looking for. This morning I accomplished a second letdown. She only got an additional 6 grams (0.2 ounces), but hey if I got an additional .2 ounces at every feeding that would be an extra 2 ounces for the days total. I'll take any increase I can get right now. I will edit this at the end of the day to include today's totals.
