My DS is 9 weeks old and I have never had a supply problem until today. As he has had many feeding problems (was premature) I have regularly had to express after a feed to comp feed him. Today he has been quite unsettled, and I put it down to the fact he has had the runs so I thought his tummy might be a bit icky. At the last feed he fell into a deep sleep half way through the first side so I decided to express the other side - and got a total of 30ml!!! Only two days ago I was able to express 200ml during the day (we had to bottle feed him and I expressed as we only had a short amount of time to feed him). Is it possible for my supply to disappear that quickly? My DS has a milk intollerance so I can't give him formula. Luckily I have a lot of EBM in the freezer - so have a back up supply.
What are the best ways to increase supply QUICKLY. I think it may have something to do with the fact that DS has been going between 6-8 hours overnight lately, but has still been feeding around 2 hourly during the day.
