    Hi Kari,

    It sounds like you are doing such a good job. Its such a challenge when there are already so many factors with the breastfeeding parent AND a sleepy baby. I’ve worked with a few people who have sleepy babies for one reason or another and it really complicates milk production and weight gain.

    The only other thing I could add is that I have had some success with pressure in the area of CV17 when nursing or trying to pump. If she can find the right point it might help with a stronger let down response. Generally pressure on the point itself will feel like a dull ache and some people report an almost hollow feeling in the chest or pain referral to the back when pushing on it, followed by a stronger sensation in the breasts.
