Low milk supply

Hi, are there any mums out there with low milk supply due to late in breastfeeding. Im currently 1.5 weeks pp and i didnt breastfeed thruout because my milk wouldnt come out. Now its out but only a few drops. Anyone with similar experience and has managed to fully breastfeed? Any tips? Im so sad and regret i didnt breastfeed immediately after giving birth. My breast was sooo engorged then but now its not anymore after massaging. Does this mean i can’t produce any more milk? Ive tried pumping every 2 hours but still so loww, sometimes none at all:(( any tips mummies?

How much are you pumping out each time?

Don’t be discouraged! If there’s some coming out, it means production is still ongoing:) you need to drink more water/fluids (3L/day), eat well, try to rest more, and you can try power pumping whenever you do pump + direct latching on demand (seeing baby helps create a letdown reflex). For power pumping, you can try pumping for 10min then stopping for 5 minutes then pumping for 10min, stopping for 5, then pumping for 10 again. This can help build supply too:)
