Low milk supply

My husband is deployed and I have a one year old and a one month old. Between pumping every two to three hours and feeding him bottles at night I wasn’t getting enough sleep, my supply dropped over the past week and I’m trying to build it back up since my husbands coming home in the next week Any tips or advice on bringing it back??

    I’ve tried all the teas, cookies, and fenugreek pills.

    Power pumping and blue Gatorade! Also nurse very often.

    Please save your money on teas and stuff, (Lactation Counselor here) you have to move milk to make milk. The more you nurse and pump will help you create more milk. Try pumping for 20 mins every 3 hours or so. Let him nurse on your breast when he is with you. Bottles is only for other people. Letting him nurse is the best way to help your supply. Try not to stress mama you got this!
