    Mummies,

    does anyone experience low milk supply suddenly after 2 weeks of birth?
    Ive been pumping regularly of 200ml each time (3 hours interval) and suddenly I'm left with 50ml (3 hours interval)

    Does anyone knows what's happening?

    Try latching, I find that latch-on is the best way of increasing milk supply. Alternatively, do an extra 5 mins pump in-between your regular pumps. Do not fret if there is little milk during the extra pump, as you are trying to increase your milk production instead. Remember, bfg in the early stages is all about demand and supply.

    there are several factors that will affect low milk supply
    lifestyle, mood, eating habits and baby feeding habits.
    stay cheerful and increase baby feeding time. :D

    i experience that during my first pregnancy too. *worried*
    tried all methods but in the end with right guidance from Auntie Lynn (9060 5065) who does lactation for me, milk supply has been more than enough for the boy.

    no worries! just stays positive!
