Thanks, Jodie! Baby’s weight was very low and in fact was losing weight, so I needed to act quickly. I think I got my milk back in order, or order enough so that I can pump enough at strategic times to save some for a bottle at night when milk was pretty low or low enough babe would get so frustrated and give up.  I always offer the breast first and nearly consistently she finishes a bottle afterwards. We are definitely in a better spot. I didn’t have fennel on hand, but basil was a positive support. She’s eating solids much better as well which is also helping. I am going to keep monitoring her growth because she was had not even doubled her birth weight. She started off great for several months and I think my milk supply tanked due to work and general family stress and didn’t know it until recently.
