Posted By: Elsa only few drops after weeks of pumping? - 07/20/08 05:44 AM
Hello wonderful ladies,

I'm adopting a little girl from Guatemala, and have been following the protocol for the past 4 months with the hopes of breastfeeding her. She will be 8-9 months old when I bring her home.

Here is my question:

I've been pumping 4-5 times a day, and about a week ago, I started getting 1-2 drops each time. At first I was very very excited to see ANY milk, but now I"m feeling a little discouraged that the amount has not increased. Has anyone had this same situation? I don't know if that means that I'm not producing much milk, or if it's a letdown issue.

Would love to hear from others who've been there. smile Thanks!

You should start to see things pick up and the drops should become sprays soon. This is totally common. If you look at the other threads we have a few moms in the same time frame of pumping as you seeing the same thing.
