Breastfeeding is starting to give me serious anxiety.
My supply is never steady. And right now it’s low. All I have in the fridge is enough for the next feeding, and I JUST pumped.
I thought it may be working out that was affecting my supply, but I haven’t been working out as regularly as I’d like these past few weeks and it still dropped. I know it dropped a few weeks ago because I started my period. I got it to pick back up again, and well…here I am again.
Jake will be 6 moths old in a little over 2 weeks, and that’s when I planned to stop. But even that’s giving me anxiety. When I was super low a few weeks ago I tried supplementing with formula and he wouldn’t take it. And he actually refused the next few bottles after that even though they were breast milk. So I know the battle to switch won’t be easy.
I think I’m going to try a more milk plus pill I saw at sprouts and hope that picks up my supply and keeps it somewhat steady.
Maybe once I hit the 6 month mark I’ll play it by ear? I dunno. I just wish this wasn’t such a battle.
