For a week and a half now, my milk supply seems to have dramatically diminished. Sorry to any guys who may be reading this (which I'm sure is very few), but my breasts have shrunk in size, Noah has been fussy, and when he latches on he releases to relatch multiple times. I can tell he's searching for more. This lessening of milk has made me exceptionally sad, and I've been doing everything I know to increase my supply. I've been nursing Noah a lot throughout the day so that my brain knows to make more, and just yesterday I picked up a prescription my doc ordered for me. However, it only has a 30%-40% chance of working and I won't know if it is working for 3-4 days. I bought some formula yesterday and gave it to him a couple of times today...he gulped it down. Which makes me feel like I've been depriving him for a week now. He just hasn't been getting enough. I wonder if he'll sleep better tonight. He hasn't been sleeping well this last week and a half. I've been trying to figure out how this has happened, and I've only been able to come up with two possible reasons. The weekend of the baby shower, I missed a few nursings. Usually, when I miss a nursing, I just get really full and that's that. However, I missed a couple, two days in a row. Secondly, I got super sick at the beginning of last week and it lasted for several days. Could either of these two reasons be the downfall of my milk supply? I'm sick just thinking about this. Formula is not the devil, I know...but I just love nursing him, and I've been his provider for the last 7 months, and now I don't have that ability. Someone tell me there's a solution!
