Tough weak-need supply help

On Sunday I found out I was pregnant, lost one of the babies, but am still carrying one. My supply has tanked. I'm drinking as much water as I can stomach but am worried. Any suggestions?

mother's milk plus if you would like to keep nursing while pregnant. Ask doc on fenugreek and others as I don't know on them. if fenugreek ok let me know as I have a brand new sealed bottle my sis in law didn't want if you want it that is.

Re: Tough weak-need supply help

I am so sorry for your loss. That sounds like a very trying week. I will send you lots of vibes for a HH9M for your baby. Keeping a supply during pregnancy can be difficult if not impossible. Your poor body must be very confused with all of that going on. Is your nursling still relying mostly on BM or does she enjoy soilds too? I have nursed through 3 pregnancies and always dry up. Like can't express a drop dry up and the toddler just keeps on nursing and continues after my milk comes in for squish. Are you taking your prenatals and getting some rest? It may sound a bit silly but make sure you are thinking positive especially when you are nursing. I think we can really sike ourselves out. I hope some of the other mamas will have advice about increasing your milk. Are you comfortable taking other supplements?

I'll take anything, really. I'm 8 weeks and still getting let downs. The baby ears lots of solids but we nurse to sleep. We've started introducing formula in a cup at mealtimes. I had planned on nursing her until she gave it up - and she loves her some booby. Lol.

I've read Fenugreek is not safe in pregnancy. But I'll look into the milk+

That's so sweet! But I don't think it's safe. :-(

MotherLove makes "more milk too" which is safe while pregnant. However, there isn't much that can be done to keep a good milk supply while pregnant.
