I am demand feeding my 16 week old DS, and for the last week or so, he had been feeding every 4-5 hours. I have always had an over supply of milk, having more than enough for him in only one breast, and he is a big eater!
EXCEPT today, he has been very unsettled/hungry and wanting boob at least every 2 hours, and he can only suck for about a minute before my boobs are both empty, and they have stayed deflated, which has never happened.
I'm sure he is going through another growth spurt, but i have never had so little milk before and am so worried that this could be my breastfeeding coming to an end
I guess i am just looking for some support and hopefully some reassuring stories from anyone else who had a similar experience?
BTW i totally realise i must sound a bit silly after just being like this for a day, but it's so awful hearing him crying in hunger and for the first time i don't have nearly enough for him and i don't want to supp feed as it would compromise my supply further...
Any advice or relatable experiences would be much appreciated!
