I know these are all difficult things to do but make sure to drink tons of water, eat plenty of calories and try to get plenty of rest. I know it's hard right now. I struggle w/ it too but those are the things I know to do. There are also natural herbs that you can take but I can't remember the name of them. I know it starts w/ an F though. There is also a medication that you can take but some people say no. I took it for a short period of time w/ my last baby after going back to work. It's called Reglan. Milk production is not the purpose for the medication. It's just a side effect. You may want to also check on the breastfeeding forum. They may be able to tell you the herb I was talking about.
I also wanted to add that I know that I nurse at home more often than I was able to pump at work, so I know that that did cause my milk production to go down. Unfortunately, you probably won't be able to help that. After my stockpile of milk that I had in the freezer was gone, I did have to end up supplementing w/ formula.
I just wanted to say HEY Radhika glad to hear from you and glad your little one is doing well, it is a blessing that these wonderful ladies have kept this forum going.
Drink tons of fluid, i agree with what Michele said.
When i went back to work i could not keep up with the pumping at work or even pumping at home to store milk, so i made the choice to breastfeed when i get off work until its time to go back to work and she gets formula while im at work. She will be 4 months friday and im thinking to switch her to strictly formula around 5 or 6 months. Even when i try to nurse her during the day when im off, she doesnt get a lot bcuz my supply is super low during the day from not nursing or pumping:(
Fenugreek is the name of the herbal supplement....
