    Fussy baby, not enough milk?
    SarahWhite91 posted:
    My son is almost 2 months old & I have been breastfeeding him since day one. My son is very fussy,but hes gaining the proper amount of weight. It just seems like he needs something to fill him up a little more. I use my pump every morning after i feed him one side and I still only get 2 ounces. Shouldn't I be getting more by now? I feed him the 2 ounces at night after he's finished both breasts. I'd like to start freezing milk, any tricks to make more?? Thank you

    Nurse more often .Also after every feed for a couple of days try to pump .Eat oatmeal and garlic .They help to make more milk.2 ounces fpr 2 months is just about right .

    try using nettle herb and fenugreek tablets i had the same problem and i did these they worked great . also have lots of hydrating fruits since breast milk is basically glucose . if sugarcane is easily available where you live thats great for milk production
