breastfeeding issues
Hi my baby is 18weeks old and since 2week's ago when I got my period my breastmilk has dropped loads I have to supplement with formula I want to EBF again but my health visitor ain't so helpful,  I tried fenugreek but it ain't helping like last time. I just took domperidone but hopefully that helps. Any tips in meantime please I'm at my wits end

Nurse as frequently as possible and try pumping after. Even if nothing is coming out it will signal your body to produce more. Also make sure you are extra hydrated.

Stay hydrated, that has helped me a lot.  It should be supply and demand.  Nurse often if your baby is needing/wanting.  Keep at it!  Best of luck!
