Nothing really helped for me too.. oats, salmon, durian, fenugreek... I tried almost everything... best advice would be to pump at least 15 mins after every direct latch... at the beginning there won't be milk... after a few days , you will see the difference.. try it! And also, dont stress! Drink more water! Try to rest more.... it will get better!!

Drink lots of water after latch pump. It works in supply and demand. And when your milk is building up you will feel Engorment pain. Rmb to use hand express and pump it out don't be like me I had Mastitis. It's damn painful.

Drink more water. Try taking dates or oats milk. Avoid fenugreek as it will give baby gas.
